COUSINHOOD
PRIMOS
2011, 98 min, Spain, Dir: Daniel Sanchez Arevalo

When Diego (Quim Gutierrez) is jilted at the altar, his cousins, playboy Julian (Raul Arevalo) and depressed, eyepatch-wearing Miguel (Adrian Lastra), convince him to join them on a trip to northern coastal Spain, where they think Diego can re-ignite the spark with ex-girlfriend Martina (Inma Cuesta). Upon arrival at Martina's pueblo, Diego finds his old flame now to be a single mother, complicating the mens' plans for a swift, simple reunion. A very funny and surprisingly edgy comedy about male insecurity and weakness (the Spanish title PRIMOS niftily translates as both "Cousins" and "Suckers") from filmmaker Daniel Sanchez Arevalo. In Spanish with English subtitles.

TORRENTE 4: LETHAL CRISIS
TORRENTE 4: CRISIS LETAL
2011, 93 min, Spain, Dir: Santiago Segura

The fourth installment in writer-director-actor Santiago Segura's franchise about iconic lowlife cop-turned-private eye Jose Luis Torrente finds the titular character contracted to kill the father of the bride whose wedding he has just turned upside down. Yet Torrente's contractor betrays him, and the balding detective winds up in jail, where he meets a slew of colorful characters (including 87-year-old Tony Leblanc, who has appeared throughout the series as Torrente's uncle Gregorio) who help him scheme a hairbrained strategy for busting out of prison. With Enrique Villen and Kiko Rivera. In Spanish with English subtitles.
