Spanish Film Festival 2013 Opening Night – A Gun in Each Hand (Una pistola en cada mano) at Palace Verona with star studded cast including Ricardo Darín, Luis Tosar, Javier Cámara, Eduardo Noriega, Leonor Watling, Candela Peña and Cayetana Guillén Cuervo. Witty and funny with an amazing cast and something not often seen these days – an excellent script!! – MiSociety.
Oscar winning director Fernando Trueba’s (Chico y Rita, Belle Epoque) The Artist and the Model (El artista y la modelo). Nominated for 13 Goya Awards this year including Best Director and Best Picture, this exceptional Spanish production, in the French-language, unfolds in the rural splendour of the French Pyrenees in 1943.
Indie box office hit in Spain Carmina or Blow Up (Carmina o revienta) is a glorious and outrageous comedy. Written and directed by Paco León in the style of a documentary, the bizarre and hilarious Carmina or Blow Up follows the filmmaker’s mother, a 58-year-old tavern manager in Seville.
Days of Grace (Dias de Gracia), a 2011 Cannes Film Festival Camera d’Or nominee and winner of 8 awards including Best Actor, Best First Work and Best Supporting Actress at the 2012 Ariel Awards of Mexico. The gripping crime drama takes place in Mexico set against the backdrop of three soccer world cups (2002, 2006 and 2010).
Don’t Fall In Love With Me (No te enamores de mi) puts a fresh spin on the term “romantic comedy” with a good dose of courage and sincerity. Pablo Rago (The Secret in their Eyes, 2009) leads this gorgeous cast composed of an exciting new generation of Argentinian actors who will leave you reflecting on your concept of love in our modern times.
From the producers of The Impossible, Biutiful and Red Lights, and writers of Cell 112, The Impossible and The Orphanage, The End (Fin) is a suspense-filled, visually stunning thriller that wraps a thought-provoking novel by David Monteagudo in blockbuster production values. With brilliant performances from Maribel Verdú (Pan’s Labyrinth), Clara Lago (SFF13, I Want You), and Daniel Grao (Julia’s Eyes), The End will have you glued to your seat right up until its last haunting moments.
