Review: Even the Rain (También la lluvia)

15 April 2011 8:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

If today's political activists are seeking inspiration from history, they should look no further than the 16th-century Spanish historian, social reformer and Dominican friar Bartolomé de las Casas. As one of the early Spanish settlers in the West Indies, Las Casas participated in many of the atrocities -- slavery, torture and murder -- the settlers committed against the indigenous peoples. But Las Casas later saw the error of his ways, gave up his slaves, and devoted his life to fighting for the rights of the Indians, whom his fellow colonists considered less than human. Through his writings and activism, Las Casas is considered one of the first advocates for universal human rights.

Sadly, Las Casas probably would be very disillusioned by the state of today's world, where oppressed peoples continue to suffer in so many ways. But he also might find hope, for his modern-day activist brethren are still raging against their oppressors. »

Berlinale Closes Pt. 1: Jury Prizes, Teddys, and More

19 February 2011 1:36 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We haven't mentioned the Berlinale at all in the heat of Oscar week. So let's do that, shall we? Better late than never. The festival closes tomorrow but the awards were handed out over the past two days.

"Nader and Simin: A Separation" Golden Bear

Asghar Fahradi, who got a lot of Oscar buzz a couple years back (though no nomination) for About Elly, won this year's Golden Bear for Nader & Simin: A Separation (2011). The Hollywood Reporter explains the film like so.

Farhadi's drama traces the breakup of a Iranian family set against the political tensions in Tehran. While not overtly political, Nader and Simin is starkly critical of conditions in Iran, notably the country's huge class divide. It was widely tipped to win Berlin's top prize, not least because of the current upheaval in the Middle East.

Fahradi dedicated his prize to jailed filmmaker Jafar Panihi who was also »

Spanish Films in Berlin: Even The Rain, Amador, Medianeras & Escuchando Al Juez Garzon

14 February 2011 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The 61st edition of Berlinale kicked off late last week, and with the inclusion of four spanish films, four less than the last year. The already well known “También La Lluvia” (“Even The Rain”) by Icíar Bollaín, “Amador” by Fernando León de Aranoa and “Medianeras” by Gustavo Taretto, all presented out of competition at the panorama section. The fourth film, “Escuchando Al Juez Garzón”, by cult filmmaker Isabel Coixet (“My Life Without Me”) is a documentary shot on black and white based on a popular figure in a Spanish judge -- this will be showcased at Specials section of the Berlinale. Although we have covered before films like “También La Lluvia” and “Amador”, the film “Medianeras” comes from out of nowhere. Directed by Argentinian Gustavo Taretto, this is an adaptation of its 2005 short film of the same title that won over forty international awards. This coproduction between Spain and Argentina »

Watch our video interview with the Spanish director.

This Week In Trailers: También la lluvia (Even The Rain), Funkytown, Cold Weather, Griff The Invisible, The Underdog Knight 2

4 February 2011 5:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? También la lluvia (Even The Rain) Trailer Director, and native Spaniard, Icíar Bollaín certainly has picked someone unique to talk about the Bolivian Cochabamba water »

Alex de la Iglesia's The Last Circus Grabs 15 Goyas (Spanish Oscar Noms)

18 January 2011 2:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

2010 was the weakest year at the Spanish box office in a decade – proof that the films with the most box office potential fell flat. Actually, very few have performed decently. Ironically the biggest flops and the most coldly received by critics films are the ones top lining the nominations for this year's Spanish Academy Awards, the Goyas. Alex de la Iglesia's “Balada Triste de Trompeta” gathered 15 nominations, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor (Antonio De La Torre), Best Supporting Actress (Terele Pávez) and Best Newcomer Actress (Carolina Bang). “Pan Nere” follows with 14 nominations, the surprise hit by Agustí Villaronga will compete for Best Film, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor (Sergi López), Best Actress (Nora Navas), Best Newcomer Actor (Francesc Colomer) and Best Supporting Actress (Laia Marull). Following Agustí Villaronga's film we find “También la Lluvia” by Icíar Bollaín with 13 nominations fighting for Best Film, »

Oscar Watch: Even the Rain (From Spain)

7 January 2011 12:00 PM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

See the trailer here. Today I was treated to, or better expressed, awarded, an intimate lunch where I got to sit at a table for six which included Even the Rain's director Iciar Bollain ♀ and its producer Juan Gordon, its U.S. distributor Vitagraph's David Schultz, and one of its most important theatrical exhibitors Landmark Theater's buyer David McAllister, Maya's Tonantzin Esparza and a critic (whose name I did not catch). The discussion was sociable, stimulating and sometimes acutely focused on the film itself. Luckily for Vitagraph, a small and very well connected distributor whose output is some 15 films… »
