Gossos de pluja

Gossos de pluja


Unable to carry to Menorca the terrible weight of guilt for the accidental death of his younger sister, Sara, David Seguí runs away from home after a violent argument with his father. In Barcelona he settles in an apartment for students of fine arts and maintains a strange relationship with Paula, an attractive and charismatic aspiring painter who will force him to react; and with a city, hard and ruthless with the younger generations, which is being transformed to host the Olympic Games. The young fugitive makes a request to Paula. He wants her to paint Sara's portrait in the manner of a Russian icon or a Mexican ex-vote, with the final objective of putting it next to her tomb so that everyone who knew her can continue to remember her. Gossos de pluja is written in the clean, visual style of La casa de gel and is a precise, unsentimental portrait of late eighties Barcelona and also of the talented young artists of that time who wander around disoriented and struggling for the city and for life like lost dogs in the rain.
