WHY WE LOVE IT

The last fictional film in the incomparable filmography of Carlos Saura. With an exceptional soundtrack of Mexican popular music, the director reflects on the creative process by following the development of a play that talks about… how a play is staged. A recurring theme in his filmography, Saura makes it clear that there is no line separating fiction from reality, and if forced to choose, he opts for the former. Overwhelming cinematography by the three-time Oscar winner Vittorio Storaro and a starring role for one of Mexico’s most internationally renowned actresses, Ana de la Reguera, a regular in Hollywood cinema with films like «Cowboys & Aliens» or «The Forever Purge».

SYNOPSIS

In the casting, the young Ines will appear as a rising star while dealing with her father and local mob. During the rehearsals, the passion and tension will grow among the dancers. Powerful Mexican music sets the tone and a play will emerge in which tragedy, fiction and reality intertwine.
