Details

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:
MADRID, 1987
2011, David Trueba, Spain, 104 min.
With José Sacristán, María Valverde

A famous if pompous political columnist (Sacristán) in his 70s meets with a pretty young journalism student (Valverde). She wants to do a story about him; he wants to get her into bed. His clumsy attempts manage to get the two of them locked naked in a small bathroom in the midst of a heat wave. There the two generations confront each other in an exhilarating talkfest (the old man’s aphorisms are especially quoteworthy) that critics have compared to MY DINNER WITH ANDRE and BEFORE SUNRISE. In Spanish with English subtitles. HDCAM video. (MR)
