Ingrid García Jonsson,
American writer in Paris is hired to do a script for an edgy young director he can't stand. When he falls in love with the director's cold and manipulative pretty sister, his life starts to unravel and he realizes that he's been used.
Set in 1973 Spain, a struggling encyclopedia salesman and his wife take advantage of an offer to make adult films. The act turns him into an aspring legit filmmaker and her into an international sex symbol.
We are immersed in the 1950s, as the film diva Macarena Granada returns from Hollywood to Spain to shoot a US blockbuster entitled The Queen of Spain, where she will breathe life into Isabella I of Castile. In Madrid, not only will she meet up again with her old friends and colleagues from the troupe but she will also have to contend with another dictatorial regime: that of Francisco Franco.Written by
The expression "dispensable", or "waste of time" when something you do not like, and when the thing gets to much, "disaster." But the "agony" is not usual in your articles, and less a criticism in that you really saw it horrible watching this movie and that you did not leave the screening room because you wanted to be responsible with your obligation to make the criticism Did you write immediately after seeing it? Because reading the review, you have pitied me!.
And more striking is the way you expressed yourself after reading the interview they did to Trueba in El Mundo, with the petite who launched "The only thing I can say is that what they have attacked, they should think they are doing a Harm to their country, and then they should think that they pass and the cinema does not. " Curious after the "I have never felt Spanish, nor five minutes of my life".
I think Trueba already knows what he's done and he's putting on the patch before the wound. And I think that you will not be the only one who is going to criticize this film hard, which for what I am reading, does not have much to defend.
