Manuel – At The Cutting Edge


An creaky old man pushes and creaky old bike through the streets of Barcelona, blowing a whistle as he walks. He knows that most people think he’s just an aging tramp, but he doesn’t care. He happy in the knowledge that he’s providing a honest service, earning a crust, and
helping his unemployed son into the bargain. The fact that he’s a rusty-tongued street philosopher with a massive heart, and an accidental environmentalist to boot, doesn’t bother him either. He just wants to get on with his ‘dignified job’.

He is Manuel Rodriguez, The Knife Sharpener.
