Cachorro / Bear Cub
Made in Spain

Pedro, an attractive homosexual dentist with no feeling of responsibility for anyone but himself, offers to take care for two weeks of his 9 year-old nephew, Bernardo, with whom he has had very little previous contact. The boy?s mother is Pedro?s sister Violeta, an outdated hippie who goes off to India. Pedro initially modifies his behaviour, not wanting his nephew to see what he?s really like, nor the type of life he normally leads, finding himself having to rise to a series of unexpected challenges (school, child upbringing, etc.). The relationship between uncle and nephew gradually becomes tighter and more solid, through real love, friendship and affection, until Doña Teresa, Bernardo?s paternal grandmother, appears on the scene, taking advantage of Violeta?s absence to see her grandson and commit emotional blackmail. In her opinion, a homosexual cannot be entrusted with a child?s upbringing.
Born in Alicante, he worked as a production apprentice and assistant director with Fernando Trueba, Montxo Armendariz and Luis García Berlanga. Having garnered numerous prizes for his shorts Cenizas a las cenizas, La vida siempre es corta and Sangre ciega, he made his feature directorial debut in 1998 with La primera noche de mi vida (My First Night), followed by Manolito Gafotas (Manolito Four Eyes, 1999), Ataque verbal (2000), El cielo abierto (2001) and Rencor (Rancour, 2002).
