SYNOPSIS

On the sun-drenched streets of Barcelona, a casual hook-up between two strangers shapes into an erotic, non-linear tale in this intriguing, distinctly adult film on romantic relationships.

While on vacation, Ocho (Juan Barberini), an Argentinian poet from New York, crosses paths with Berlin director Javi (Ramón Pujol), leading to brief yet intense passion. In the afterglow of a steamy one-night stand, a hidden connection from decades earlier is revealed. Have they met previously? Reality and fantasy intermingle across time in this curious and philosophical film. The first feature from Lucio Castro, End of the Century is a romantic and haunted journey of discovery poised between the pull of freedom and the possibility of fulfillment.
