Overview

A young boy develops a close relationship with his grandmother, as he develops a new perspective on the adult world while it drifts into chaos in this periodcomedy drama from Cuban filmmaker Pavel Giroud. In 1958, as Fidel Castro's revolution lurks on the horizon, recently divorced Alicia (Susana Tejera) arrives in Havana and lands on the doorstep of her mother Violeta (Mercedes Sampietro) with her ten-year-old son Samuel (Iván Carreira) in tow. While Alicia is plagued with a childlike lack of responsibility, Samuel seems wise beyond his years, and sometimes seems to be looking after his mother. Free-spirited Violeta is not happy to be caring for Alicia again and seems no more enthusiastic about helping to raise her child, but she soon develops a rapport with Samuel as he develops a keen interest in her work as a portrait photographer. As Violeta begins teaching her grandson the basics of photography, Samuel's skills soon rival her own, but the work teaches him a few things about the responsibilities and trials of the larger world. La Edad de la peseta (aka The Silly Age) received its North American premier at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival.
