- edro Almodóvar and Guillermo del Toro you can both breathe a sign of relief. Spanish cinema is rejuvenated. The split-screen/drama that was premiered in the Un Certain Regard section at last year's Cannes (I'm guilty for having fallen asleep to this one: victim of watching one too many films and  not necessarily the film itself) has walked away from Spain's equivalent to the Oscar with top honors: Best Film and Best Director. Jaime Rosales' La Soledad (Solitary Fragments) (two parallel urban stories highlighting the fragility and simplicity of human existence) beat out the heavy favorite The Orphanage (the Picturehouse-released pic that investigates the power the dead have over the living, especially over children in the most imaginative and vulnerable stages).
