El Coronel No Tiene Quien Le Escriba / No One Writes to the Colonel

Wednesday, 10 April, 2013

Shown in Spanish with English subtitles.

The Colonel waits.  They promised him a pension, which for years has remained a promise unfulfilled.  Friday after Friday, solemn and dressed in his finest suit, the Colonel waits by the dock in anticipation of the letter announcing the arrival of his pension.  Everyone in the small town knows that he waits in vain.  He knows it too.  Every Friday, his wife watches him at the mirror dressing and preparing to pick up the letter that for years has eluded him.  But the Colonel, eyes closed to the all too evident truth, stands by his dream, for it no, what else remains for him?  Rated PG-13
