Event description

Description

Movie in Spanish with subtitles in English

Villar del Río is a peaceful, poor and forgotten town, where nothing new ever happens and the routine is the same day in and day out. Now the arrival of singer Carmen Vargas and her manager and agent have shaken up the town’s boring life. That same morning, a government representative suddenly shows up to announce the imminent arrival of a commission from the Marshall Plan. On hearing of the news, the town mayor, a good-natured albeit a slightly deaf man, decides to dress all the denizens in the purest Andalusian style to welcome the visitors. Juan Antonio Bardem and Luis García Berlanga, assisted by Mihura, wrote this corrosive story based on the unease Spain felt at being left out of the distribution of US aid (aka the Marshall Plan), which aimed to reconstruct a Europe ravaged by the World War.

Parental Guidance: This movie is for all audiences

Be on time: The movie will start at 6:00 pm so please arrive before. After 6:30 pm, the ground floor door will be closed and the elevator unable to go up to the Instituto Cervantes.

La película empezará a las 6:00 pm en punto por lo que le rogamos llegue antes de esa hora. A partir de las 6:30 pm la puerta de la calle se cierra automáticamente y tampoco se puede acceder al 3er piso, donde se encuentra el Instituto Cervanes.
