synopsis A man writes, lives and loves in darkness. Fourteen years before, he was in a brutal car crash on the island of Lanzarote. In the accident, he not only lost his sight, he also lost Lena, the love of his life. Broken Embraces is shot in the style of a hard-boiled 40s and 50s American film noir.
