The weakness of the Bolshevik

Feature film Fiction-2003
Directed by Manuel Martín Cuenca

Madrid. Autumn 2003.
Pablo Lopez is a normal guy. He’s thirty-one years old, working in an investment bank and he’s fed up with everything.

On Monday, at 9 am, in a jam in the middle of the capital, while listening to Extremoduro, his car is embedded against the convertible of the most dick of the Barrio de Salamanca. and mounts the God: The dick is of arms take, spits all the insults of the dictionary, and puts him in a monumental mess with the police and insurance. So Paul, to make more bearable a fall so tedious, decides to devote himself to putear to the dick. And Pablo Lopez, when he wants to, is really witty.

One day, when the “Puteo” has reached its most absurd point, when even the crazy phone calls to the Dick also begin to provoke boredom… Paul bumps into Bruce with Mary, the sister of the Dick. And that day his life takes a spectacular turn.

Cynical, resentful, Paul never thought that his existence could ever make sense again. And now that purity, light has burst before her eyes, feels she mustn’t, she cannot fall in love with a fifteen-year-old girl.

And then, in the middle of the autumn of 2003, something completely unexpected happens that forever changes the life of Pablo Lopez.
