MADRID, 1987

A respected veteran journalist and an attractive young student wind up locked in a bathroom, naked, with only one towel between them, in David Trueba’s witty, sensual, movie. What can they do, but talk?

Madrid, 1987 New Spanish Cinema Week (Spain, 2011, 104 mins, Blu-ray Disc) Spanish Director: David Trueba CAST Jose Sacristan, Maria Valverde


Sacristan and Valverde shine in David Trueba’s smart, sophisticated, sensual film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to great acclaim. On a hot summer day in a vacant Madrid during a period of social and political transition in Spain, Miguel, a respected journalist, sets up a meeting in a café with Ángela, a young journalism student. He takes her to a friend’s studio. His intentions are clearly sexual; hers are less clear. Chance events force them together for more time than they would have chosen, locked in a bathroom, naked, without the possibility of escape. Removed from the outside world, the pair, who represents polarized generations, is pitted in an unevenly matched duel involving age, intellect, ambition and experience. The political and social context of the period provides the background to the power shifts that continually take place between them over twenty-four hours.

    A bit too long in the loo for me and a shame about the ending with the film stopping and starting but interesting concept!

    Interesting movie, though more of a small play than a spectacle. Didn't see many people afterwards, but had a good time at the Parrots.
