La Edad de la peseta

AKA: The Silly Age

Country: Cuba

Genre: Drama



Havana, 1958. 10 year old Samuel has just arrived in town with his recently divorced mother, Alicia. They make a striking pair: from their demeanor it seems she is the child and he the adult. They take up residence in the house of his eccentric grandmother Violeta, and Samuel is introduced to a new, mysterious world: Violeta's house has rooms where entry is prohibited and cupboards filled with images of the saints. The relationship Samuel develops with his grandmother is quite singular. At first it is strained but she soon discovers a kindred spirit in her grandson.

The term "silly age" in Cuba refers to those between 7 and 11 years of age. This is a great movie about a grandson getting on his grandmother's nerves and vice versa, but then once they got to know each other they settled down and the boy became his grandmother's assistant in her job as a portrait photographer, Iván Carreira did a great job in this film and he is also a good looking lad at that.
