Miguel Ángel Vivas infuses this thriller with electricity, where José Coronado becomes a courageous father willing to find those responsible for his son’s situation. An intense film that reflects on the true knowledge that parents have about their children once they live their own life away from home.
Paco León continues playing the correct keys in the cinema after ‘Carmina or busting’ with this film, which is a celebration of love, sex and everything in between. A group of characters try to coexist with their various philias and sexual needs, in a comedy that gives off light, joy and a surprising erotic-festive spirit.
Adaptation of his own play, Jota Linares signs with this film a portrait of the generation of precariousness, to which he himself has belonged. He does it with four of the most promising young actors in our cinema (Pol Monen, Jaime Lorente, Andrea Ros, María Pedraza), and a story where secrets come to light to revolutionize the relationship between four Madrid friends.
Nominated for four Goya awards, this production by Mar Targarona recreates the stages of the Mauthausen concentration camp and relives the horror of the Holocaust during World War II. He does it to tell the story of Francesc Boix (Mario Casas), a Spaniard who experienced those horrors and helped through the clandestine sending of photographs to put a face to that historical moment that, years later and thanks to those negatives, would be brought to trial .
Isabel Coixet tells in black and white the story of Elisa Sánchez and Marcela Gracia, two Galician women who became, in 1901, the first same-sex marriage in Spain. Obviously, they had to do it secretly and through transvestites, but their love was unique, and Natalia de Molina and Greta Fernández gave her life dazzlingly.
Manuel Martín Cuenca adapts Javier Cercas’s novel about an aspiring writer who is willing to do everything to fulfill his dream. Even use the lives of their neighbors and play with their feelings. Everything is to create that perfect novel, to be the new Hemingway, to prove to his grumpy writing teacher that he has talent. Javier Gutiérrez is immense in the leading role of this film in which comedy and the saddest pathos are face to face.
In the Goya of his year, the revelation awards were his: both his young protagonist, Miguel Herrán, and the director’s debut, Daniel Guzmán. It is not for less: this film is full of honesty and the will of a generational portrait where everything runs with overwhelming naturalness. One of those little Spanish jewels that you can’t miss.
We don’t know very fat, but very funny without a doubt. Carlo Padial’s third feature film – one of the great representatives of Spanish post-humor – takes us to a stage immersed in the chroma green to tell us about cinema and art in general. Of artifice, of fiction and reality, of the profession of actor in a medium in which almost everything is already done by computer. A brilliant movie.
The mystery trilogy of Dolores Redondo could not remain without film adaptation. Thanks Fernando González Molina! The story of the detective Amaia Salazar is so shocking that you will not be able to wait to know more about her: with the task of chasing a serial killer of girls, Salazar (Marta Etura) will have to return to her hometown, where the traumatic memories of his childhood. An exciting story, of ‘Fincherian’ dyes and feminine power. The shadows of the Baztán forest will leave you frozen.
