Sole, Mari Pili and Marta are three girls that share an apartment in the pre-Olympic Barcelona. They decide to play a game: avoid all the preambles to the manhunt and have an affair with the first man that asks you your name.
An amusing minimalist frieze in fifteen episodes about human behavior (Desire, Submission, Love, Jealousy, Wisdom, Honesty, Sincerity, Passion, Faith...) situated between two fantastic stories about Willpower and Doubt.
Anna Maria Dalí is four years younger than her brother Salvador and they love each other. Both enjoy the great progressive atmosphere of republican Spain, fraternizing with great creators, García Lorca, Buñuel.
A young drama student interviews three great actresses: an international diva, a television star and a dubbing director, and she discovers, in their memories, the grandeur and the misery of theatre: a real metaphor of life.
Rosa Maria Sardà,
Moving, contemporary take on the meaning of true friendship
AMIC AMAT (the original Catalan language, English subtitled version I just saw) is a touching portrait of friendship. It narrates different family, college, love and sex-for-money relationships all interwoven in a beautiful statement about friendship. With photogenic and vibrant Barcelona as its setting, AMIGO AMADO/Amic Amat takes great opportunity to showcase its location, and contemporary Catalan bourgeois culture, among other issues. But the one it is always addressing is the nature of true friendship and how it can triumph even in today's turbulent and complex society.
