El autor

by Manuel Martín Cuenca Window: San Sebastián

Ever since Álvaro has separated from his wife – herself a famous author – he has become even more obsessed with the idea of writing his own book. Despite visiting countless workshops, however, he is lacking in both talent and captivating ideas. Encouraged by his paid mentor to be inspired by ‘real’ life, Álvaro gets to work and starts observing his unknown neighbours in the apartment block where he lives. Once he realises that he can influence the ‘reality’ of his fellow human beings, his novel really starts to write itself… One of the year’s most anticipated Spanish films, Manuel Martín Cuenca’s hilariously entertaining drama deals introspectively with art and authorship.
