"Demasiados Amigos" is an independent psychological drama that reflects on the relationships of friendship, their importance, their dangers and their consequences. "There seems to be a fire every time we get together," Los Planetas.
It's been a year since the last time they saw each other. During the holidays of Fallas, Palo and her friends move to a house in the countryside to enjoy a quiet meal, catch up and, if it's possible, recover their friendship. After a series of unfortunate accidents, the group is incommunicado and the stay extends longer than expected. The differences between them, accentuated by the passage of time, seem to distance them from a possible reconciliation. However, the situation will be transformed as feelings and ties that they considered lost appear in an involuntary retirement that will change them more than they had ever imagined.
Demasiados Amigos is a story about post-youth and friendship.
The reunion of a group of friends who are no longer friends it's the initial approach of a plot that focuses on the internal conflicts of its main characters. However, during the story different traditions, customs and problems that are currently being experienced in a country like Spain are also taking center stage, placing the action in a hypothetical future Valencia. Issues such as immigration or climate change are seen from the eyes of this group of friends who seem to have chosen to look the other way.
The importance of the film lies in the need to speak of this fraction of youth lost in a limbo halfway between adolescence and adulthood, between created needs and real ones. Thus,** Demasiados Amigos **pretend to be a faithful portrait and at the same time fresh and imaginative about these young people who believe that fun and friendship can be endless, young people who choose to live anesthetized before facing the vertigo that causes them the emptiness that they fear is waiting for them .
Javier Artigas Zubeldia, born in Valencia, graduated in Audiovisual Communication from the University of Valencia (2008-2012), studying last year at the University of Aarhus (Denmark). After collaborating in several webseries as an actor, scriptwriter and director, he specialized in scriptwriting the master's degree in film and fiction script (2013-2014) at the TAI School of Arts and Shows (Madrid). He has written the screenplays for the feature films Cristales en la piscina and Demasiados Amigos, and shortfilms like No es Natural or the Nidos series. Her latest work to date has been the play Sueño Contigo.
