The City of No Limits (Spanish) 2002
En la Ciudad Sin Límites

Winner, Best Supporting Actress (Chaplin); Best Adapted Screenplay, Goya Awards
Nominated, Best Film; Best Director, Goya Awards

Directed by Antonio Hernández
Starring Leonardo Sbaraglia, Fernando Fernán-Gómez, and Geraldine Chaplin.

A suspenseful story, with an underlying plot weaving in and out of a family’s day-to-day interactions. Victor (Sbaraglia), the youngest of three sons, returns to visit his dying father (Fernán-Gómez). He finds the family ready to have his father undergo surgery for a brain tumor they insist is causing him to be paranoid and delusional. The father doesn’t want the surgery and asks Victor for help.

Victor is not convinced that the fear his father is trying to communicate isn’t real. He enters into his father’s paranoia and starts to suspect everyone. This turns out to be the right reaction – for the wrong reasons. When Victor, who has some secrets of his own, enters into an agreement with his father to carry out his last wishes, he finds out the truth.

125 min. Not rated. Some sexual content.
