View Trailer

An erotically charged romance across two time periods set among the sun-drenched beaches and architecture of Barcelona.

The very nature of time itself is explored through the intricacies of a romantic encounter between two strangers while on vacation in Spain. A fresh encounter leads to their recollections of an earlier meeting at a time when the two men were very different. Fate has perhaps brought them together, but as told through the film’s nonlinear style, their love affair is something potentially much bigger than just a holiday fling.

A remarkably assured debut by Lucio Castro, End of the Century is a bold statement about queer sexuality in the contemporary age. With remarkable camerawork that places its characters at the heart of the picturesque Barcelona with its buildings of pastel and timeless beauty, this enigmatic and resonant film combines stylistic formalism with a strong sense of passion and melancholy.

“Castro’s inventive and enigmatic debut feature is consistently surprising, turning a love story into a cosmic voyage with no clear beginning or end.” – Remezcla
