I was invited by Elvira Carrizal-Dukes, a member of the Gene Siskel Film Center and there is an upcoming Spanish cinema film festival. They are going to be several days of Spanish movies. I am going to attend to the ones in the weekends only but I am going to pass them all
Movie this time:
CARMINA OR BLOW UP
(CARMINA O REVIENTA)
2012, Paco León, Spain, 71 min.
With Carmina Barrios, María León
Owner of a bar in Sevilla, saddled with a shiftless husband and a mountain of debts, she holds court in her kitchen, reminiscing and philosophizing as she tries to deal with a disastrous robbery of 80 hams. Compared by critics to a character out of Almodóvar, Carmina is funny, raunchy, outrageous, and never less than fascinating. In Spanish with English subtitles. DCP video. (MR)
