Te estoy amando locamente + Intro

Directed by Alejandro Marín

Seville, 1977. 50-year-old Reme, a widow, is proud that her son Miguel is going to become the first person in the family to go to university. But what Miguel really wants is to be an artiste and sing in a popular television competition. A cheekily combative comedy about a devoted mother who, after her son’s coming-out, decides to overcome her own prejudices to fight for LGBTQ+ rights in the 1970s, when homosexuality was still a crime in Spain. Inspired by real events that demanded to be better known, Alejandro Marín describes his debut feature as “a luminous, optimistic comedy that is about heroes, not victims.” With joyous energy, this entertaining and heartfelt film tears traditional taboos asunder and defends the right to love.
