Life Leaves Stains

A handsome young truck driver connives to hide his gambling from his wife, an unemployment counselor to a clientele whose misfortunes only remind her of her own. The gambler's long-lost half brother sends them a lavish gift, then shows up at their door. At first the suave older man seems like a bearer of good fortune for the couple, whose financial and marital woes begin to ebb. But a dark secret in the visitor's past soon resurfaces to haunt him. Enrique Urbizu directed this 2003 Spanish melodrama with subtlety and assurance. In Spanish with subtitles.
