Emilio not the most pleasant person on earth. In past — a Professor of mathematics in this he used to keep people on distance. Invariable attribute of the pensioner relaxing in TV Internet replaces solving Sudoku and listening to classical music. Relations with the daughter are on the verge of a nervous breakdown, yeah Emilio to those of the same; the only thing seriously beginning to worry a 70-year-old man that his advanced Alzheimer's can take away the only magic in his life — teenage love, so not dared to take shape in the everyday sense of peace and calm.

In the original language title of the film sounds like "to Live twice." Surprisingly, not only Russian companies like to make adjustments to the poetic translation of films. So, the Spanish "Live twice" for a wave of the wand reflexology becomes a romantic appendage in the form of "one love". Although it would be more appropriate to replace the word "love" on"love". After all, this sense of dedicated to film Director Maria Ripoll. And the writer Mary Minges a single phrase, nested in the mouth of the elderly Emilio: "Margaret was for me PI", i.e., a mystery, a magic in the ocean of pure logic in order to soften the heart of his daughter (and maybe skeptical viewer) sincerely wants to make his father happy.

Personally, I mind return two pictures of which the relationships of loved ones and patients suffering Alzheimer's disease was considered under the scope microscope — it "Away from her" and"still Alice." Maria Ripoll and all of her if the company took the advice of Alexander Proshkin and decided to take of the American cinema all the best. Alzheimer's — a terrible disease, from which (even worse) is not no one is insured. You can have a degree and be known as a caster numbers, and to 70 years to turn into a vegetable that is not able to do basic calculation. This the insignificance of man before the mysteries of the brain, sting is stronger than any physical pain. Ripoll is very thin and unobtrusive, able to show the reverse process of identity formation — how man loses himself. Losing connection with loved ones. And immersed in your distant memories. The most important thing the Director brings to the viewer drama, can become close to each of the us, with the help of emotionally draining documentary, and with the help of Comedy. Not surprising, but in "Live twice" there is a place and "Little miss sunshine". The Duo of grandfather and granddaughter (Oscar Martinez and Carbonell Mafalda) was really sincere and direct. Their efforts were appreciated by the value the prize "L Audiovisual Valencia". Also the picture of maría Ripoll won 4 categories — best film, Best screenplay, Best soundtrack and Best costume design.

Let Mary and to make a film about senile dementia, but it is aimed at a young audience. The film is safe to watch with children. After all, they are addressed encrypted message to "Live twice" — do not pull love, love as early! Memories of whom will warm our last days — a mystery for which to live.
