Oranges Will Return

Original title: Volverán las naranjas

A love story written in text messages, full of the gaps left by the characters and the abuse of ellipses. A unique love story, like all love stories. An apparently lost mobile phone, on which someone finds hundreds of messages between a man and a woman, who are apparently strangers, writing freely about everything that matters to them. But is the virtual world so far from the real world?

Highlights Oranges Will Return


In a world without letters, love stories needed to find their place. This one is hidden among 704 text messages.


Girl, I’m watching you queuing for petrol. You’re right, I watch you more when you’re not at home. I know that on Sunday we’ll return to the routine, to the Silestone, the sofa, choosing a film at the Renoir, but I also know that together we’ll have a great time... I’ll dress up as a cowboy, a butler, a mosquito, or Napoleon again, just to make you smile before you go to sleep. I’ll pretend to be a stranger, sensitive, or macho to show you that I would be thousands of people for you just so you can find the one that’s perfect for you. A kiss back.
