La torre de Suso

La torre de Suso (The tower of Suso) is a 2007 Spanish comedy film written and directed by Tomás Fernández, in his directorial debut. The film stars Javier Cámara, Gonzalo de Castro, Malena Alterio, and Emilio Gutiérrez Caba.[1] Fernández was nominated for best new director, Caba for best supporting actor and de Castro for best new actor at the 2008 Goya Awards.[2][3]


Cundo emigrated to Argentina to seek a new life. Ten years later he returns home, to the funeral of an old friend, Suso. The film chronicles the reunion with family and friends and how Cundo wants to fulfill the ultimate dream of Suso. The film is a tribute to friendship. And above all friendship in an age where it is not so clear why you should remain friends with your childhood friends.
