TO STEAL FROM A THIEF
CIEN AÑOS DE PERDÓN
2016, Fox International Pictures, 96 min, Dir: Daniel Calparsoro

Among the year’s biggest box office hits in Spain, this expertly crafted heist film follows a team of robbers (led by Rodrigo de la Serna and Luis Tosar, both superb) who hit a Valencia bank. They make off with a number of safe deposit boxes – but one of them is filled with political information that the government is eager to keep secret. “Daniel Calparsoro’s well-dressed, high-energy heist thriller blends action with a timely critique of contemporary political corruption.” - Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter. In Spanish with English subtitles.


NOTHING IN RETURN
A CAMBIO DE NADA
2015, 6 Sales, 93 min, Spain, Dir: Daniel Guzmán

Seeking escape from his parents’ acrimonious divorce, teen Dario (Miguel Herrán) gets into minor scrapes with lifelong buddy Luismi (Antonio Bachiller) and finds a surrogate family in Madrid with a mechanic and a 90-year-old junk dealer. With his background as an actor, writer-director Guzmán has a sharp eye for detail, and this Málaga Best Film winner has an appealing naturalism from first frame to last. “A high-energy, feel-good movie with the warmest of hearts.” – Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter. In Spanish with English subtitles.
