Enjoyable film with melancholy , thoughtful events and being deliberately paced
11 April 2015 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Ane's (Nagore Aramburu) existence turns apart when , week after week , she receives a bunch of flowers at home . Always at the same time and always without a senders note . Then , there takes place a car crash and the happenings get awry . Later on , the confrontation between the three women : lover , wife and mother-in-law called Tere (Itziar Aizpuru) , rages because blame each other over the accident , though not formulated .

This interesting film is full of drama , touching scenes and good feeling . It is a simple , dramatic and intelligent portrait of a few people , being spoken in original Basque language . The picture is developed in slow-moving but is pretty well realized . The flick stands out for its melancholy and poignant multilevel exploration of romance and remembrance . The story has a certain melancholic style , a climate of transience and sadness that spread the dispute between the three women he knew . The intrigue is whether these intertwined lives finally will eventually find and recognize . It packs a nice cast though unknown who gives good performance . Sensitive musical score by Parcal Gaigne , an expert composer who has composed and conducted a lot of scores such as ¨Mensaka¨ , ¨Silencio Roto¨ , ¨Piedras¨, ¨Azuloscurocasinegro¨ , ¨Gordos¨ and many others . Colorful as well as evocative cinematography by Javier Agirre , being shot on location in San Sebastian , Guipuzcoa and surroundings .

Loreak had a world premiere in San Sebastian Festival's main competition , and its filmmakers Jon Garaño, Jose Mari Goenaga are preparing "Aundiya" (Alzo's Giant) . Set up at 'Loreak' or "Flowers'" production partners , Irusoin and Moriarti Produkzoiak , two of Basque Country's most active producers, are preparing "Aundiya" , but this project is a period piece ; it requires multiple VFX; some scenes could take place outside Spain . ¨Loreak¨ and ¨Aundiya¨ mark a further step-up in the international ambitions of Basque cinema ,Irusoin and Moriarti have already teamed with U.S.-based Tom Atencio, the manager of New Order for 18 years, and producer of 2007 docu-feature "Joy Division," to produce a fiction feature based on docu-pic "Lucio," a portrait of a legendary anti-Franco anarchist and master forger helmed by Arregi and co-Moriarti founder Jose Mari Goenaga . ¨Loreak¨ won the followings prizes : Cinema Writers Circle Awards , Spain 2015 Won CEC Award Best Supporting Actress Itziar Aizpuru ; Feroz Awards, ES 2015 : Best Actress in a Supporting Role , Best Film: Drama and Best director ; San Sebastián International Film Festival 2014 won SIGNIS Award and Special Mention Jon Garaño , Jose Mari Goenaga ; Palm Springs International Film Festival 2015 Won Cine Latino Award Jon Garaño , Jose Mari Goenaga ; Sant Jordi Awards 2015 Won Best Spanish Film and Nominated Goya Awards 2015 to best film , Best Original Score Pascal Gaigne , being the first movie filmed in Basque language nominated for a Goya.
