Two couples in their thirties have heated discussions on the essentials of life unfolding between Madrid and the neighboring countryside, imbued with enchanting melancholy and gentle humor.
In Spain there is a tradition called “la hora del vermut” (the vermouth hour) which refers to a little stretch of time before lunch when you sip vermouth to prepare your stomach for the meal to come. Spanish director Jonás Trueba’s “You Have to Come and See It” only just crosses la hora mark, but it is as sociable and swiggable as a draught or 10 of sweetly fortified wine. In fact, it’s an aperitif that proves so satisfying, so simple and sunny and sage, that you might find yourself filling up on its drowsily erudite, oddly nourishing pleasures and forgetting about lunch altogether. – Jessica Kiang, Variety
