Tomorrow Don’t You Forget (Mañana no te olvides)

Dir. José Enrique Pintor (Pinky), 2017 | 108 mins

After Roberto's beloved wife dies, his health begins to decline as he slowly slides into the vague worlds brought on by the worsening Alzheimer's disease he has been suffering now for years. His daughter Ruth decides to take him in to live with her family, even though her husband Alfredo argues that she already has enough problems at home with the care of Jan, her only son of 17 years who has Down Syndrome. With the arrival of Roberto at home, the relationship between the grandfather and his grandson begins to grow and deepen, discovering that both have many things in common. They also come up with some ‘bucket list’ plans, and soon hit the road to fulfill them. Moving and amusing, Tomorrow is a bittersweet story of love, memory, and companionship in all its forms.

Spanish with English subtitles.

“La tierna historia supera en efectismo emocional al plantear con entereza el discrimen contra los envejecientes (que deberían ser llamados La Generación Consistente, como se estila en otros países) y los niños especiales, estableciendo que pueden ser tan talentosos y competentes como cualquier otra persona de su edad.”
