OPERACION CONCHA: A SAN SEBSTIAN FILM FEST-INSPIRED FLICK
17 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

"Operation Goldenshell (Operación Concha)" (2017, Abra Producciones/Spline Producciones) directed and co-written by Antonio Cuadri and starring Spanish-talent extraordinaire, Jordi Mollà with other Latin American and Spanish actors. This film inspired by the spirit of film making and the San Sebastián International Film Festival or known in Spain as the Festival de San Sebastián.

Cuadri's film stars the comedic talents of Mollà as his plays the con artist character, Litarco and with veteran Spanish actors like Karra Elejalde. With small supporting roles, Uruguayan, Bárbara Mori and Mexicana, Mara Escalante play the roles of a famous US Latina celebrity, Joselyn and a wealthy Mexican woman, Pamela.

It's a zany international comedy of a struggling film production who try to con Pamela (Escalante) in giving them money to produce a new film to star a famous Cuban actor, Rey also played by Mollà. They enlist Litarco to act as the Cuban actor as they attend the famous the San Sebastián International Film Festival to finalize the money deal. Along the way, the mafia go after Litarco as he tries, in between the action, to get the "action" from Rey's leading lady, Joselyn (Mori).

All scenarios clash at the famous film festival, Cuadri giving his nods to many Hollywood movies, with a parody melange of scenes. This festival started in Basque Spain since the late 1950s honoring many actors with their famous Donostia award (even US talents like Meryl Streep in 2008).
