Les hores detingudes

The Stale Hours | Quaderns Crema, 1993

Owing to a tragic accident, Ostia Antica becomes the centre of a young widower’s memories, while desperately trying to capture and fix the splendour of his deceased wife’s life before it fades away into oblivion.

His remembrance is enriched by that of his father-in-law and daughters, which results into a meaningful net of contrasted recollections. The Stale Hours is the diving of a man into the dark, deep waters of mourning.
