Spanish film made in Barcelona next at Murphy Library this Thursday, December 27

Posted on: December 22, 2012

Fate gives us the next library movie.

Spanish screenplay writer and director, Fernando León de Aranoa originally wanted to study Fine Arts in college. Instead, due to a clerical error, he ended up in Film & Communication Studies.  That mistake started him on a successful writing and filmmaking career and we are the better for it.

Barcelona, Spain is the location for his recent film Amador, the next Film Movement selection at the Murphy Library.  Marcela, a young immigrant woman from Latin American finds a summer job taking care of an elderly man named Amador. They slowly hit it off and she adds friendship to her caretaker role. But nothing is forever or is it?

The Murphy Library is showing Amador in its original Spanish with subtitles in English this Thursday at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.  Running time is 112 minutes and it is not rated but would not be suitable for children.

Director León de Aranoa writes that he wanted the film to have “a deliberate elegance and serenity” in the music, photography and framing of each scene. It has this and great acting as well.  Call 837-2417 for details.
