Review
Juan Villegas has the luck of the luckless, now living in his daughter's tiny flat with her new family and unemployed, his attempts to sell hand carved knife handles are not going as well as he would have hoped. After an act of kindness on the roadside Juan is given a pedigree dog and so begins his unlikely journey towards a life as exhibitor and breeder, with the help of his experienced, if slightly wayward new friend, Walter. Bombon El Perro is a beautifully observed tale, but its very simplicity and deliberate lack of sophistication are also the elements that deprive it of any great meaning…though perhaps that's precisely the point.
