La Educación de las hadas

Directed by José Luis Cuerda

In his first film as director since LA LENGUA DE LAS MARIPOSAS, Cuerda adapts Didier Van Cauwelaert’s best-selling novel of the same name.

Nicolás (Darín) meets Ingrid (Jacob) and her 8-year-old son Raúl (Valdivia) on a flight. From this chance encounter he manages to create the perfect family. A ‘natural’ father, Nicolás feeds Raúl’s active imagination with stories of fairies. When their idyllic family life is threatened, Raúl seeks the aid of a fairy – and supermarket clerk Sezar (Bebe) suddenly appears in the ‘magic’ forest. Set in a remote house in stunning Catalan woodlands, the film evokes both the wonder of fairytales and the pain of loss. A revelation, Bebe also stars in Julio Medem’s upcoming film CAÓTICA ANA.
