Conference interpreter during the presentation of Eric Besnier’s film ‘Las cosas sencillas’.

Las cosas sencillas tells the story of Vincent, a stressed and busy businessman, who one day breaks down in the middle of a mountain road. Pierre, a lonely country man, stops and offers to help him. This apparently insignificant encounter will be a turning point in their lives.

It will be the beginning of a friendship in which they will discover, as the title points out and the prologue of the film insists, that they compare the overflow of modern life with the relaxing landscapes of nature, what are the important things in life. Despite their opposing views of life and their opposing temperaments.

As the director states, we all live in a continuous tension between the current pace that engulfs us with its day-to-day life and the idealisation of the contemplative and tranquil life. And in the middle ground, as always, lies the virtue. Not forgetting, of course, the fundamental question: Are we happy?

“Vuelta a casa de mi hija” is an entertaining comedy from the director of “Barbecue with Friends”.

Starring two-time César winner Josiane Balasko (“The Hedgehog”), three-time César nominee Mathilde Seigner (“A Summer in Ibiza”) and Jérôme Commandeur (“Welcome to the North”).

While her flat is being renovated, Jacqueline is delighted to be obliged to spend “a few days” with her eldest daughter Carole and her son-in-law, both in couple’s therapy. These “a few days” turn into “a few months” and Jacqueline quickly feels at home; she prepares dinners, hogs the TV, rearranges the kitchen… Mum is here and no one knows for how long!



Conference interpreter during the San Sebastian Film Festival

Johnny Depp has presented this weekend in San Sebastian, in the framework of the Festival, the film ‘Crock of Gold’, a film in which as a producer he narrates the life of his friend, composer and Irish poet Shane MacGowan, under the direction of Julien Temple.

Depp’s intention with this documentary is that the public will definitely know who Shane MacGowan is and what his legacy is.

The actor referred to his Irish friend “as one of the greatest poets of any period in history and a special person”. Depp praised his partner during the press conference: “I’m lucky to know that kind of greatness, I fell in love with him from the very first moment. He is not interested in beeing a celebrity. He is irreverent, stubborn, biting and funny” he added.

Depp is in the film itself with MacGowan, first drinking with him and then playing the guitar at the tribute concert he and celebrities like Bono, Nick Cave and Bobby Gillespie gave him. The director Julien Temple, who has directed the documentaries of the Sex Pistols, The Rolling Stones and Marvin Gaye, explains that he was interested in guiding this production “so that the children know and understand what has happened between Ireland and the United Kingdom”.

On the other hand, Florian Zeller, a brilliant novelist and dramaturg whose work has been translated into several languages, has presented “The Father”, an adaptation to the big screen with which he makes his debut as a director.

The Father’ tells the story of Anthony (Anthony Hopkins), a man of almost 80 years of age who lives alone in his London flat and who refuses every nurse that his daughter, Anne (Olivia Colman), hires to help him at home. Anne is desperate because she can no longer visit him on a daily basis and feels that her father’s mind is beginning to fail and she is becoming more and more disconnected from reality. As the plot progresses, however, Anne’s father will begin to doubt his loved ones, his own mind.

Thanks to the public’s acceptance of the proposals offered by the Festival, it has been possible to fill the halls in an edition that has counted on the participation – in person or virtually – of top international celebrities, thus taking another step forward in the consolidation of this annual event.

A total of 44 films have been screened – 16 in the official section – and the winners have been:

The Best Film Award went to the new film by the British director and scriptwriter William Nicholson with “Hope Gap”.
