Comments referred to the movie



It is a long film which has needed 40 years to be achieved; its purpose is showing the Puerta del Sol from 1967 to 1970 (filmed in black and white) parallel the same Puerta del Sol from 2005 to 2008 (filmed in colour). It is a very particular movie, partially a documentary and partially an experimental film; obviously, it is absolutely different from other things done previously.
