An Argentinian man from New York and a Spanish man from Berlin hook up by chance while in Barcelona. What seems like a one-night encounter between two strangers becomes an epic, decades-spanning relationship depicted in nonlinear fashion with time and space refusing to play by the rules, turning a love story into a cosmic voyage with no clear beginning or end.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Time Out by

A beautifully crafted love story, End of the Century has two understated, thoughtful performances at its heart. It explores its existential themes – of the passing of time and of roads not taken – with delicacy and deftness. It’s a road worth travelling.
98

TheWrap by Carlos Aguilar

End of the Century is a sublimely haunting experience that will make you sigh in recognition of the what-ifs in your own life.
75

Slant Magazine by Ed Gonzalez

Castro’s feature-length directorial debut is a profound and casually artful expression of the lengths to which people go in order to not have to embody their desires.
83

The Film Stage by Jason Ooi

End of the Century is a love story drenched in a nostalgic magical realism that constantly shifts its own logic, as if recognizing the futility of containing its uncontainable romance.
100

IndieWire by Jude Dry

Like a great poem, End of the Century gives voice to a seemingly indescribable feeling, one anyone who’s ever fallen in love will recognize from deep in their soul — as if bumping into an old friend you forgot how much you liked.

The Guardian by Peter Bradshaw

It balances what is with what might have been and what could still be, and, although the result is maybe a bit less substantial than Castro intended, there is a certain literary elegance in the way he sketches it out.
