100 mins
Director Cesc Gay

Cert 15

A man comes to terms with a terminal illness. Infused with a rich humanity, the understated yet powerful performances of the leads find frequent and endearingly dark comic catharsis – not least through the titular Truman – an elderly bullmastiff that consumes much of his focus as the man faces up to his own mortality.

Best film, director, actor – Goya Awards 2016

“The film brings out the best in both actors and finds gentle humour and poignancy in a very moving story.” – Daily Mail
