365 Days of Film in 2011 | Day 7: Los abrazos rotos (Broken Embraces) (2009)
Mateo Blanco/Harry Caine: I used to be called Mateo. And I was a film director. I was always tempted by the idea of being someone else, as well as myself. Living one life wasn’t enough for me. So I invented a pseudonym: Harry Caine, an adventurer who, as fate would have it, became a writer. I made him sign all the stories and scripts I wrote. For years, Mateo Blanco and Harry Caine shared the same body. Mine. But there came a time when, suddenly, I could only be Harry Caine. I became my alter-ego. a self made writer created by himself. There was just one unexpected detail. Harry Caine would be a blind writer.
