CARMINA AND AMEN
CARMINA Y AMÉN
2014, Telecinco, 98 min, Spain, Dir: Paco León

Paco León follows up last year’s popular CARMINA OR BLOW UP with another hilarious (if fictionalized) portrait of his mother. When her husband dies, chain-smoking Carmina Barrios is determined to keep it a secret until she gets a check that he had been expecting. The absurd, sometimes vulgar, comic energy of Almodóvar’s early films lives on here! In Spanish with English subtitles.
