Review | The Time I Give You - Season 1

The Spanish attraction of Netflix has a creative structure, but it is a little superficial

Netflix likes to innovate and bet on ideas that are sometimes good and sometimes not. But when you choose the challenge, the boldness of streaming in providing us with different experiences is surprising. the spanish series El Tiempo Que Te Doy comes in this non-standard footprint and the way the narrative was assembled is very touching and delicate. It is a hidden treasure among the famous productions. The work directed by Inés PainterPablo Santdrián and Pablo Fernández.

There are ten episodes, all 11 minutes long – the first work I've seen with that length, I never imagined seeing something like this -. Even with a shorter duration, the quality and richness of details of characters is incredible. The dynamics are very simple and very easy to understand. The series deals with the phases of a love relationship, that is, the beginning, the middle and the end. Thus, the plot is divided between past and present. Following this dynamic between two portrayed times, the phases of the relationship and the duration of the plot, in the first chapter we can see 10 minutes dedicated to the past and 01 in the present moment, in the second episode, 9 minutes in the past and 2 in the present… and so on.

Crítica: O Tempo Que Te Dou – 1ª Temporada
nadia de santiago and Alvaro Cervantes are Lina and Nico in the time i give you / Reproduction

In the time i give you we follow the character Lina who is played by nadia de santiago (As Telefonistas), one of the creators of the series. Despite sharing the screen with Nico, the character of Alvaro Cervantes (Legacy in the Bones), the point of view is hers. When they meet and in the course of their first feelings, Nico is working as a biologist and diving instructor. Lina, on the other hand, dropped out of Economics and works as a waitress at the resort to pay for her nursing course. His study motivates the couple to move from the beach to the city, and from the evolution of the protagonist, the plot identifies the cracks in the relationship. However, intimacy, creating subliminal messages that only they understand, and choosing a favorite place and other things that make you a unique couple are shown in the plot.

It's no secret from the beginning of the series that we know they're breaking up and how difficult it is for them to live together. The more she tries to forget about Nico in the present moment, the more the moment in the past is short… it's as if their memories together are unraveling, being erased so she can move on, as we see Lina's difficulty in getting back to life after the break up. The central duo's chemistry and charismatic supporting cast are positive points. Photography is very interesting in this sense, accentuating the emotions of each moment.

The creative structure is very attractive, in addition to the short total duration that doesn't exceed 120 minutes… it's almost a movie. However, some defects in the text are visible, showing a little superficial at times such as in the "DRs" with silly dialogues and the dramatic load that is somewhat limited, showing a construction and deconstruction of a story without much depth, but this lightness is what makes the series captivate and be what it is. It is a story of love, separation and grief after the breakup and how life is rebuilt after chaos. It's a series that doesn't hide how imperfect human beings can be and that no pain, anger, hate, resentment, sadness lasts forever. It's a well told plot and it fulfills what it set out to do.

Thunder Wave note
Loving someone is synonymous with happiness, pain and imperfection. O Tempo Que Te Dou is a beautiful story that shows us feelings without mockery, it's very simple, that's what it is, period. There is no need to flourish to talk about love relationships. The series, which has 11 episodes, efficiently develops the reflection on the love between two people and that not every relationship has a happy ending, but there is the happiness of what was lived and the forgiveness of mistakes made. It's really worth it.
