Through a dialogue between its formal aspects and its characters, "The Solitude of Memory" constructs a profound meditation on memory and grief. José, Nando's father, remembers repeatedly the last words that he spoke to his son before he decided to take his own life. José then lives his days without him in a remarkably personal film, charged with poetry and introspection. The film was shot in Milpillas, Atotonilco in the state of Jalisco, Mexico.
