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. »

Written and Directed by Pedro Almodóvar

Connected film festival attendees learned about Pedro Almodóvar before everybody else, especially if they had an understanding of new developments in Spanish cinema. Film school had shown us nothing but the very exceptional work of Luis Buñuel, most of which is really from Mexico and France. In the 1980s we Angelenos were just getting access to films by the old-school ‘traditional’ rebel Spaniards Carlos Saura and Juan Antonio Bardem. »
