Synopsis

Robert, a language teacher, leaves England in 1976, accompanied by his adventurous Belgian partner, Moni, to take up a job teaching English in Barcelona. What was to have lasted just a year turns into six years. Robert's unfolding story becomes a voyage of discovery out of which emerges a full-length portrait both of Barcelona and of the two people who plunge into the unknown of this magical, sometimes darkly phantasmagorical, city. The many experiences narrated are caught in the light of a time full of great social and political change following the death of Franco. Together with this, fleeting moments in the couple's lives are crystallized into a Proustian permanence. Barcelona One More Time is a revealing, many-layered tale of two people, a place and a time.
