THE DAYS TO COME
ELS DIES QUE VINDRAN
2019, Film Factory, 97 min, Spain, Dir: Carlos Marques-Marcet

Carlos Marques-Marcet’s third feature-length film follows a couple in Barcelona, Vir (Maria Rodríguez Soto) and Lluís (David Verdaguer), who have only been dating for a year when they discover they have become pregnant. The film has a compelling documentary quality, in that the actors are a real-life couple expecting their first child. Marques-Marcet seizes this opportunity to create a hybrid film that offers an intimate and realistic view into the joys, fears and challenges of pregnancy, and the radical change it brings to a relationship. The film took home several awards at the recent Málaga film festival. “A film that's neither quite documentary nor quite fiction, and all the more intense because of that.” - Jonathan Holland, Hollywood Reporter.
