Blancanieves is one of the peaks in recent Spanish cinema, but had the bad luck to be released a year after The Artist (2011), a silent film that triumphed the world over. Pablo Berger had in fact decided years earlier to film his personal take on the Brothers Grimm fairytale as a black-and-white silent; the result is heartrendingly beautiful. »

“No Kids” was the third highest grossing Argentinian film of 2015. This delightfully energetic comedy from Ariel Winograd (“My First Wedding,” “To Fool a Thief”) centers on Gabriel (Diego Peretti) a divorced father who dotes on his 9-year-old daughter Sofía (Guadalupe Manent, who steals the movie in her big screen debut). Their relationship is disrupted when he falls in love with the child-hating Vicky (Maribel Verdú, “Y Tu Mamá También”), forcing Gabriel to jump through hoops to conceal his daughter. »

La Punta Del Iceberg Trailer: In Spain, Suicide Is Not Painless

14 April 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

David Cánovas has made a series of short films in Spain and now his feature debut, La punta del iceberg (The Tip of the Iceberg) is about to open in theaters. (Note: the headline includes an obscure reference to the theme song from Robert Altman's Mash.) The trailer reveals it to be a drama, and possibly a thriller, starring Maribel Verdú (Pan's Labyrinth), Álex García, and Bárbara Goenaga (Timecrimes). After a large company is shaken by the suicide of three employees in a short period of time, Verdú is sent to investigate the circumstances.

Surreal Madrid: Antonio de la Torre Joins Maribel Verdú in Pablo Berger’s “Abracadabra”

2 March 2016 9:10 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Landing Antonio de la Torre as the co-lead to the already announced Maribel Verdú, we are chalking up Pablo Berger‘s third feature film as a subtitle film item to look out for in 2017. Cineuropa reports that Torre, Quim Gutiérrez, José Mota and José María Pou have joined Abracadabra — with production being set up for early May in Madrid and Navarre.

Gist: This revolves around Carmen (Verdú), a housewife who lives in the Carabanchel neighbourhood of Madrid. One day, she discovers that her husband, Carlos (De la Torre), seems to be possessed by an evil spirit, and so begins a thorough investigation, straddling terror and ludicrousness, to try and get him back.

Worth Noting: Berger’s debut film Torremolinos 73 was distributed in the U.S via First Run Features.
