Het Amsterdam Spanish Film Festival opent morgen met Quién te cantará van Carlos Vermut (2018). Van 28 mei tot en met 2 juni zijn er in verschillende Amsterdamse bioscopen Spaanse films te zien. Daarna reist het festival door naar Rotterdam.
Over openingsfilm Quién te cantará
Lila Cassen was the most successful Spanish singer of the 90s until she disappeared mysteriously from one day to the next. Ten years later, Lila is preparing her triumphant return to the stage but, shortly before the eagerly awaited date, she loses her memory as the result of an accident. Violeta is dominated by her conflictive daughter.
Following the success of Magical Girl, Carlos Vermut returns with this harrowing story, a female-driven drama tightroping the edge of sanity that will shake audiences seeking quality film to their core. Quién te cantará positions its director as the successor of Pedro Almodóvar in his darkest and most perturbing sense with titles like The Skin I Live In and All About My Mother.
Actresses Nawja Nimri (TBC) and Eva Llorach will be performing some fragments from the original soundtrack after the première. Followed by Spanish drinks & jamón ibérico will be served after the première.
Het festival sluit af met El Reino / The Realm
Directed by: Rodrigo Sorogoyen
Cast: Antonio de la Torre, Bárbara Lennie, Ana Wagener, Josep Maria PouManuel López-
Vidal (a superb Antonio de la Torre) is an influential politician ready to take the leap to the big leagues when a leak causes him to become involved in a corruption scandal. But when the party closes ranks against him, Manuel finds himself without power and without friends. But he is not going down alone. The Realm is a suspenseful, character-driven political thriller straight out of today’s headlines.
The première will be followed by a Q&A with actress Bárbara Lennie. Spanish drinks & jamón ibérico will be served after the première to festively bring yet another festival edition to a close.
