AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
AL FINAL DEL TÚNEL
2016, 120 min, Argentina/Spain, Dir: Rodrigo Grande

In this REAR WINDOW-esque thriller, wheelchair-bound Joaquin (Leonardo Sbaraglia) discovers that a tunnel is being dug under his building in preparation for a bank robbery - and he wants a share of the loot for his silence. Terrific performances from Sbaraglia and Pablo Echarri (as the thieves’ sadistic leader) keep the suspense at fever pitch throughout. “The movie finally feels as sweaty, claustrophobic and nervous as the title implies, staying on just the right side of excess.” - Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter.

Love-struck Rafa (Dani Rovira, in his feature debut) pursues a Basque woman (Clara Lago), pretending to be Basque himself to gain her father’s approval.

I WANT YOU
TENGO GANAS DE TI
2012, 124 min, Spain, Dir: Fernando González Molina

In this sequel to THREE STEPS ABOVE HEAVEN, Hache (Mario Casas) is back in his native Spain following two years in London. After his best friend Pollo (Alvaro Cervantes) dies and his girlfriend Babi (Maria Valverde) leaves, the young man struggles with loss until he meets Gin (Clara Lago), a photographer, singer, dancer and all-around wild-child with whom he falls in love. Adapted from a Moccia novel like its predecessor, this teen melodrama employs striking visuals, epic music and great editing as it juggles sex, violence and motorcycles, with Casas’ engrossing performance as the rebel Hache tying it all together. A major box office hit in Spain. In Spanish with English subtitles.
