“Gay's picture proves once again that one can construct a comedy out of such material, as long as one respects the subject matter and refrains from being gimmicky in order to feel edgy and cool.” - Oktay Ege Kozak, indieWire

”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.”- Joe Leydon, Variety | full review

Truman
explores the intimacy and tenderness of a lifelong friendship headed towards its imminent end. Diagnosed with terminal cancer, Julián (Ricardo Darín, 2009’s AcademyAward®-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.
