CARESSES

  • Drama
  • | 1997

Directed by Ventura Pons

The city, restless, at night. A chain of eleven stories complete a circle, linked by characters with different relationships: couples, mother-daughter, friends, brother-sisters, young-old people, father-son, lovers, fatherdaughter, mother-son, who cannot manage to communicate through love, to caress. It is set in the present, at the end of this millennium.

These are naked moments in which human beings show their most intense emotions, as well as their basest instincts, love/hate, but also love in its many forms. Despite proximity, people can be total strangers. They can talk without listening, listen without feeling and act without thinking. But there can also be a spark of hope, of communication, a few caresses.
