WHY WE LOVE IT

At the 27th Malaga Film Festival, LA CASA won six awards for its originality and freshness, including Best Screenplay and the Audience Award, as well as being considered by the press as the great surprise of the festival. On this occasion, Alex Montoya (award-winning short filmmaker at Sundance) adapts the graphic novel of the same name by Paco Roca, whose rights were sold to France, Germany, Italy, the United States, and South Korea, among others. Following the path of the successful ARRUGAS by the same author, the characters show a universal sensitivity through a temporal game where memories and the reality of the present intertwine until the feelings kept for years end up overflowing. Through long shots with parallel conversations (edited by Jaime Rosales’ regular collaborator), a naturalistic light reminiscent of the Dardenne’s, and a careful acting work led by David Verdaguer (recent winner of the Goya for Best Leading Performance for JOKES & CIGARETTES) LA CASA serves as a metaphor for that place where each viewer can see his or her family relationships reflected.

SYNOPSIS

After the death of their father, three siblings return to the family home where they grew up. They intend to sell it and follow their very different paths. But as memories surface in every corner, a fear of getting rid of the past and an impulse to reunite grows in them. As a last tribute to their father, there may still be time to make up for lost time and the house may witness new stories.
