In Spanish with English subtitles.
Bigas Luna’s breakthrough film stars Spain’s greatest modern actor, Javier Bardem, in his first major role as “the Brando of Los Monegros,” bullfighter and ham delivery-boy. Penelope Cruz co-stars as Bardem’s love interest in her breakout performance as teenage seamstress Silvia. An erotic parable of modern Spain set in a desolate, dreamlike landscape of burger joints and whorehouses.
“I wanted to fascinate others with what fascinates me.” – Bigas Luna.
