After the phenomenal success of Arrugas (¡Viva! 2012), we’re thrilled to present a second film from comic strip artist Paco Roca, an autobiographical story adapted for the big screen in partnership with Diana López and Ángel de la Cruz. The classic 2D animation is book-ended by live-action scenes with Raúl Arévalo, a familiar face for ¡Viva! fans. Paco, a 40-something bachelor from Barcelona, finally sees his childhood dream come true: a job working from home in his pyjamas. Just when he’s reached the zenith of personal happiness, however, he falls in love with a woman who’s not convinced his main objective in life should be to remain at home in his pyjamas. A delightful coming-of-age comedy for big kids who never want to grow up.
Short film screening alongside this feature film: UK premiere/ El Jarrón
A cemetery is almost always a tranquil place, although it can also be a perfect setting to encounter some amusingly bizarre characters. Thus a calm and quiet morning visiting a deceased family member ends up being a very strange situation indeed.
