A perfectly calibrated drama boasting exquisite attention to detail, revealing itself through elegant visuals as much as astonishing performances. With breathtaking elegance and stunning assurance, Ramón Salazar takes a melodramatic chestnut and makes it flower with unexpected emotion in La enfermedad del domingo, one of the genuine discoveries of the 2018 Berlin Film Festival. Salazar sends his charismatic lead actors Bárbara Lennie and Susi Sánchez into an extraordinary family conflict in this film from his very own script. Impressively composed pictures depict an existential trip with unexpected twists and a disturbing climax.
The prèmiere will be followed by a Q&A with the director Ramón Salazar (both days).
* SPECIAL EVENT: Spanish wine will be served at Cinecenter première on Friday. This première is part of the Cine Expat meetup.
