Official Competition (M)

The best director, the best actors, the best idea?

When a billionaire entrepreneur impulsively decides to create an iconic movie, he demands the best. Renowned filmmaker Lola Cuevas is recruited to mastermind this ambitious endeavour. Completing the all-star team are two actors with massive talent but even bigger egos: Hollywood heartthrob Félix Rivero and radical theatre actor Iván Torres. Both are legends, but not exactly best friends. Through a series of increasingly eccentric trials set by Lola, Félix and Iván must confront not only each other, but also their own legacies. Who will be left when the cameras finally start rolling?

Cast: Penélope Cruz, Antonio Banderas, Oscar Martínez

Directors: Mariano Cohn, Gastón Duprat

★★★★ "Official Competition is quite a satire, one that finds its heart of darkness hidden in the absurd reality of high-art cinema" SCREENANARCHY

★★★★ "Bolstered by an incredible cast, the film offers commentary on filmmaking as an art & the lengths the characters will go to outshine each other." SCREEN RANT

★★★★ "Banderas and Martínez play their catty thesps dead straight to generally hilarious effect, while Cruz cuts loose as a fiery artiste prone to dancing the floss in moments of stress." TIME OUT


Starts from Thursday, 18 August 2022. Session times to be announced.
