BLACK BREAD
PA NEGRE
2010, 108 min, Spain, Dir: Agusti Villaronga

In Spain in 1944, 11-year-old Andreu (Francesc Colomer) witnesses the brutal murder of a man and his son in a forested ravine, and quickly runs home to tell his mother, Florencia (Nora Navas). Andreu soon thereafter is sent to live with his extended family in the countryside, where he befriends his jaded cousin Nuria (Marina Comas) who has lost her fingers to a grenade, and a consumptive boy who imagines he has angel wings. Loosely based on Charles Dickens' Great Expectations with the bleak fantastical soul of PAN'S LABYRINTH, subversive filmmaker Agusti Villaronga's harrowing and richly textured depiction of Spanish rural life during wartime is both challenging and rewarding. Winner of a whopping nine Goya Awards, including Best Film, Director, Actress (Navas), New Actor (Colomer), New Actress (Comas) and Supporting Actress (Laia Marull). "Dark to its heart and breathlessly watchable." -Variety In Spanish with English subtitles.
