Pau i el seu germà

Pau and his brother

 
Barcelona. While visiting his mother, Pau receives a phone call: Alex, his brother who had disappeared months before, has committed suicide. Pau and his mother, who is unaware of what exactly happened, set out for the small Pyrenean village where Alex lived before he took his life. This is a journey down their common past, intimate and painful. In this part of the world, Pau and his mother will come across those who were part of Alex‘s life; they will become familiar with his love affairs, his anger, his world, and, quietly, step by step, they will come to life again and rediscover their own selves. In this story, we talk of time and life, of the lack of communication between people. We talk of silence and of the destruction of nature. In an attempt to be faithful to the storyline, we shot the film in chronological sequence, gradually following the evolution of the characters, seeking, in accordance with the weather and the landscape, the revelation of the moment which would help us in unveiling the mosaic of non-communication among the characters.
