About the Movie
TRUMAN explores the intimacy and tenderness of a lifelong friendship headed towards its imminent end. Diagnosed with terminal cancer, Julián (Ricardo Darin, 2009’s Academy Award-winning The Secret in Their Eyes) has decided to forgo treatment, and spend his final days tying up loose ends. When childhood friend Tomás (Javier Cámara, "Talk to Her") pays his ailing friend an unexpected visit, he quickly realizes he won’t be able to change his mind. In what will be their final reunion, the two friends set out to finalize Julián’s funeral arrangements, settle his accounts and, most importantly, find a home for his beloved dog, Truman, in this heartfelt and surprisingly humorous film.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This well-made, low-key drama, written by Mr. Gay and Tomas Aragay, offers some insights into terminal illness.
Fresh: Cesc Gay's wise, wistful and well-observed film about two friends enjoying a final reunion in the shadow of impending death, is by turns amusing and affecting - and quite often both at once.
Fresh: It sounds paradoxical but, if done right, films about a life ending can be the most life-affirming films you'll see. "Truman," a great success in its native Spain, is definitely done right.
Fresh: The film is restrained and observational, its impact cumulative.
