Cows Wearing Glasses

Marcelino is a celebrated painter and art teacher with a curmudgeonly reputation. On the verge of losing his sight and being squeezed to retire from the university, he reaches out to his only daughter, Isabel, a writer of self-help books. With his thoughts turning to his final end, Marso seeks forgiveness for abandoning his family decades ago. The wounds of the past prove difficult to heal, however, in this engaging and touchingly bittersweet comedy-drama.
