He absolutely does not realize that he is not present for his family and in particular for his 18-year-old daughter whom he has always neglected.

José Garcia brings an exceptional seriousness to this broken businessman, sinking into the lie until he can no longer extricate himself from it.

Lover of complexity

“I only go to auteur cinema when the roles are complex, insists José Garcia.

“I like to surprise others and myself,” he says.

This is how I keep myself in shape.

A form as dazzling as his performance in
