Truman

Series: Portland Latin American Film Festival

When Julián receives an unexpected visit in Madrid from his lifelong friend Tomás, the encounter is bittersweet. This reunion, their first meeting in many years, may also be their last. Diagnosed with terminal cancer, Julián is focused on putting his affairs in order, while Tomás is still grasping at hope. For four intense days, the two men, accompanied by Julián’s faithful dog, Truman, tour the city sharing emotional, hilarious and surprising moments. Full of laughter and sadness, and led by brilliant performances from Ricardo Darin and Javier Cámara, TRUMAN is a wonderfully touching film on how we say goodbye.


“The story of a cancer patient’s final months is an effective tearjerker, featuring outstanding and nuanced performances” - The Guardian.

Después de muchos años, dos amigos de la infancia se reúnen para pasar unos días inolvidables juntos. El primero, Julián, un actor argentino exiliado que hace años que vive en Madrid y está atravesando unos momentos difíciles. El segundo, Tomás, un matemático que trabaja en la Universidad en Canadá. Ambos junto a Truman, su perro fiel, viven unos días maravillosos recordando los viejos tiempos. Pero esta reunión será también el último adiós de ambos.
