Despabílate Amor Details


A group of former high-school buddies, now in their mid-40s, gather 25 years after graduation to relive their glory days. The reunion is the brainchild of Ricardo (AKA Elvis -- for his love of the King's music and his tendency to dance to it atop the roof of his office-furniture store). The old gang is comprised of Ricardo's depressive, hypochondriac wife Ana and her socially-conscious former lover Ernesto, a journalist who left Ana years ago to pursue his political ideologies in post-revolutionary Cuba. Ernesto's presence revitalizes Ana who in turn begins showing renewed interest in her husband. Unfortunately for her, by that time Ricardo has fallen in love with Vera, a beautiful Cuban cellist. Two other members of the old gang also show up. Finally there is Sebastian, Ricardo and Ana's 20-year-old son. A poet, he shares Ernesto's serious view of the world. As the party progresses, their reminiscences of the good old days are shown via flashback. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
