Penélope Cruz, Antonio Banderas and Oscar Martínez lead the way in this stone-cold satire about the movie-making process.
An aging millionaire concerned that his legacy is lacking a great achievement decides to produce a masterwork of cinema. After nabbing the rights to a Nobel Prize-winning novel, he hires Lola Cuevas (Cruz)—known as much for the micromanagement of her actors as she is for her artistic vision—to bring it to the silver screen. Her stroke of genius? Since the novel is about a sibling rivalry, she will hire two actors who come from two very different backgrounds: Iván Torres (Martínez) is a stage legend known for his pursuit of artistry, while Felix Rivero (Banderas) is famous for brain-draining action flicks. It isn’t long before this experiment seems headed toward a cliff.
Ego will collide, scenery will be chewed and absurdity will ensue in this latest collaboration from Argentine filmmakers Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat.
