Ciné Sunday: Love Beats

#DiscoveryFilmFest

Edu, a young musician who lives in London, returns for ten days to his hometown in Spain to attend his brother’s wedding. The return awakens in him the need to recover everything he left behind: especially his connection with his former flame, Alicia, who is now the girlfriend of his best friend Juanma.

"Looks at the age-old questions that arise when returning home after living/working/studying away..."

This gentle, character-driven romantic drama looks at the age-old questions that arise when returning home after living/working/studying away. How easy is it to pick up where things were left with family, friends, acquaintances – and is home really where the heart is?

Whilst the casual banter with ex-school friends in the bars and cafes may be quickly re-established, what of the deeper relationships with parents, siblings and former sweethearts? Do the dreams we start out with always last? Or do they need to be renegotiated in the light of inevitable change in the people and places around us? Is nostalgia for home necessarily rose-tinted? And for Edu – should he stay? Or should he go (back to London)?
