Spain / 97 min. / 2013 / Catalan, Spanish


We enter the peaceful daily life of this Valencian songwriter, who, since 1979 has humanized Mediterranean pop with his youthful enthusiasm and calm ways. Garlic, tangerines, clothes on the line, great melodies and him, doing his thing. A wise man that's well worth reviving. 

 

The opening images give the story away: Juli Bustamante eating a tangerine, a tap dripping in the background, humming and "waiting for the coffee". A hero in slippers, a man like any other, only this one is gifted with a special talent. We slip into the tranquil day-to-day existence of this Valencian songwriter who has humanized Mediterranean pop with his youthful enthusiasm and calm ways, since 1979. His life is very Zen: on the roof terrace, watching the clothes dry ("it comforts me, it transmits humanity") and walking through Valencia, Bustamante speaks to us about his childhood, his family history, how he started to make "pure and simple pop music" in an atmosphere of politicization or surrealism, he lets us in on the time he almost become semi-famous and how he lives today without any kind of limelight, while new generations discover his work. In no hurry. A great guy. And that's how he rolls "like a cat, looking for the sun", doing his thing: garlic, the library, rehearsals, great hits (they're all here: "Hablando de Van Morrison", "Avions", "Cargo de mí"...) and him, being him. A wise man worthy of reviving. And more and more people are doing precisely that every day, as you'll see.

 

Xesc Cabot is an actor, and the bassist in various pop groups (Fred i Son, Micacos, Supergrupo) and a film director. Pep Garrido is a screenwriter and realizator. Together they sign Bustamante Perkins, a pure fan-made film.
