Fernando loves his dead wife. Too much.
After the loss of his wife Ana, Fernando becomes a quiet and introspective man, who raises his son Daniel by himself. Every night, while the boy sleeps, he recalls his love by organising her personal belongings. His life is turned around when he discovers a handful of sex tapes in his deceased wife’s homemade VHS collection. Obsessed with the idea of tracking the unnamed lover, Fernando leaves everything behind – including his son – to insert himself into the life of Salvador, an ex-con and the man from the videotapes.
An exhibition of remarkable cinematic control, To My Beloved is a film rife with psychological tension and subtlety.
