A STROKE OF LUCK
VILLAVICIOSA DE AL LADO
2016, Film Sharks, 90 min, Spain, Dir: Nacho G. Velilla

Inspired by actual events, this delightful comedy is one of Spain’s biggest box office hits of the year. The small town of Villaviciosa de al Lado is teetering on bankruptcy when salvation arrives in the form of a huge lottery prize and the accompanying national attention. Unfortunately, the winning ticket was sold at the local brothel, and the group of men who bought it must concoct a scheme to keep the secret from their wives while claiming the cash.


OFF COURSE
PERDIENDO EL NORTE
2015, DeAPlaneta International, 102 min, Spain, Dir: Nacho Garcia Velilla

Hugo (Yon González) and Braulio (Julián López) both have university degrees and no jobs. They think they can escape the economic doldrums by leaving Spain for Germany, but what looked like a land of opportunity on TV presents more challenges to the two friends than they expected in this sparkling comedy. One of the most successful films of the year in Spain! In Castilian and German with English subtitles.
