It’s ‘Tiempo’ time at Malaga

Fest touts 16 official selections with 'Heroe' closing

MADRID — Pedro Olea’s “Tiempo de tormento” will kick off this year’s Malaga Spanish Film Festival, Spain’s biggest film event dedicated to local films, on April 25.

Fest’s competition closes with Antonio Cuadri’s “Eres mi heroe.”

Potential standouts in the 16-movie official selection include Pablo Berger’s “Torremolinos ’73,” a kind of “Boogie Nights” set in the highly unglamorous last years of Franco’s dictatorship; another first-time feature, Juan Martinez Moreno’s Madrid gangland saga “Dos tipos duros”; “La vida mancha,” Enrique Urbizu’s follow-up to “Caja 507”; and “Palabras encadenadas,” a husband-wife chamber piece from Laura Mana, who drew attention with her debut, “Sexo por compasion.”

This year’s fest, which closes May 3, will pay tribute to Spanish director Juan Antonio Bardem (“Muerte de un ciclista,” “Calle mayor”), who died last year, and offer a retrospective of the work of helmer Manuel Gutierrez Aragon (“Maravillas,” “El Caballero Don Quijote”).

Fest also hosts the third Mecadoc European and Latin-American Documentary Market from April 24-26 and the fourth Malaga Market Screenings (May 1-3), which allows foreign buyers to catch up with competition films at Malaga and a raft of recent releases and upcoming pics.
