Berlinale 2017: The Queen of Spain Review

14 February 2017 5:49 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Poking fun Hollywood, and the golden age of movie-making in particular, Fernando Trueba’s The Queen of Spain laughs at the industry with the same affection and romanticism that Hail, Caesar! carried, to find that compatible balance between ridicule and adulation. Given this meta endeavour is set within the business it allows the filmmaker a licence to be overstated, and he uses that freedom in quite remarkable fashion, with an aesthetic almost as vibrant as that of which we saw in his enchanting, Oscar-nominated animation Chico & Rita.

Blas Fontiveros (Antonio Resines) has been presumed dead, but makes a shocking return to world of make believe by turning up on the set of the Hollywood blockbuster set in Spain and starring their most famous export, the fictional creation of Macarena Granada (Penélope Cruz) – a character who first graced the screen in Trueba’s The Girl of Your Dreams »

Berlin Film Review: ‘The Queen of Spain’

13 February 2017 12:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The opening fifteen minutes of “The Queen of Spain” promise a delightfully retrograde romp back in time to the Technicolor pleasures of that golden moment in the mid-1950s when Hollywood came to Spain. Glamorous movie stars, blacklisted writers, campy production designers, fabulous sets, and hunky grips all coming together to make movies and snub their noses at Generalissimo Franco. Then the plot kicks in, and it becomes clear Fernando Trueba is having so much fun revisiting characters from 1998’s “The Girl of Your Dreams” that he’s forgotten how to build a story out of multiple strands and make it all work. Penélope Cruz is always irresistible and the cast of Spanish greats know how to chew the scenery, but this overlong semi-farce with serious overtones seems mostly designed for the local blue-rinse crowd.

For those needing a refresher course, in “A Girl of Your Dreams,” a Spanish film »

The Queen Of Spain review [Berlinale]: Dir. Fernando Trueba (2017)

13 February 2017 12:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Queen Of Spain review: Penelope Cruz reunites with her Belle Epoque director Fernando Trueba for this madcap comedy which features an interesting international cast.

The Queen Of Spain review by Paul Heath at the Berlin Film Festival, 2017.

Queen Of Spain review

Told primarily in its native tongue, but with some English, mostly coming from the American actors in the picture, Trueba’s film is set in 1950s Spain where returning actress Macarena Granada (Cruz) is welcomed home to shoot a Hollywood-financed historical production. We’re introduced to the actress and via reels of archived footage from the day, some real, some enhanced with Cruz’s likeness skillfully inserted. We’re painted an instant picture of Granada’s life up-to-now, both private and professional before quickly shifting to the then present-day and the character of Blas Fontiveros (Antonio Resines), who has also returned home after a long period of time missing. »

Our Favorite Faces Of Cary Elwes

13 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Later this week, Predrag Antonijevic's Ghost of New Orleans will be released theatrically and on several other platforms like VOD and Digital HD. In it, two cops use an abandoned house as a stake-out location, only to be contacted by the ghost of a woman who was murdered there, urging them on to solve her crime as well. It sounds like an interesting premise, and with a castlist including Josh Lucas, Terrence Howard, Lake Bell and Cary Elwes you'd suspect it would have been a bit quicker to get to the screen, seeing as how its shoot had finished in 2010 already (and its world premiere was in 2011). Ah well, producers run into problems sometimes, and judging by some Very angry on-line comments, these...

‘The Princess Bride’ Honest Trailer Praises the Sappy Swashbuckling Love Story

10 January 2017 3:12 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As part of Fan Appreciation Month at Screen Junkies, the YouTube channel has released an Honest Trailer for the 1987 classic “The Princess Bride,” starring Robin Wright and Cary Elwes.

Unlike many other Honest Trailers, Screen Junkies actually praises the “action-comedy-romance-drama-kids movie for adults” by calling it “the best sappy, swashbuckling, medieval love story ever made.”

The video begins by attempting to explain the narrative, describing it as “a real movie about a made-up book, based on a real book about the same made-up book that the real movie is based on.” Confusing, right?

The video then explains the love story between Westley, “the farm boy turned pirate,” and Buttercup, “the farm-owning orphan turned Princess,” poking fun at the film for having “really really polite action,” mid-fight conversations, countless catchphrases and cheesy music. It also »
