To My Beloved

SAN SEBASTIAN IFF

After the loss of his wife Ana, grieving Fernando spends his evenings watching her old VHS tapes. When he discovers recordings of his wife cheating on him, the widower becomes obsessed with the idea of finding the other man.

Synopsis

After the loss of his wife Ana, Fernando becomes a quiet and introspective man, who raises his son Daniel by himself. Every night, while the boy sleeps, he recalls his love by organising her personal belongings. His life is turned around when he discovers a handful of sex tapes in his deceased wife's homemade VHS collection. Obsessed with the idea of tracking the unnamed lover, Fernando leaves everything behind - including his son - to insert himself into the life of Salvador, an ex-con and the man from the videotapes.

An exhibition of remarkable cinematic control, To My Beloved is a film rife with psychological tension and subtlety.
