‘Other Man’ opens San Sebastian

'Brothers Bloom' closes Spanish festival

MADRID — Richard Eyre’s “The Other Man” and Rian Johnson’s “The Brothers Bloom” will open and close the 56th San Sebastian Festival.

The Basque resort event has also added two titles to its main Competition: Lea Pool’s “Mummy Is at the Hairdresser’s” and “Louise Michel,” from Benoit Delepine and Gustave Kervern.

Set in the summer of 1966, Pool’s Canadian family drama stars Celine Bonnier and Laurent Lucas.

Mathieu Kassovitz-produced, “Louise Michel” turns on a group of laid-off femme factory workers who hire a contract killer to avenge their pinkslipping. It world preems at San Sebastian.

With “Man” and “Bloom,” San Sebastian, the Spanish-speaking world’s biggest confab, looks set to add some more star wattage to its lineup.

Love-triangle romancer “Man,” Eyre’s follow-up to “Notes on a Scandal,” toplines Antonio Banderas, Liam Neeson and Laura Linney. Grifters caper-romance “Bloom,” helmed by Rian Johnson (“Brick”), stars Adrien Brody and Rachel Weisz.

The San Sebastian Festival is currently closing the presence of the pics’ cast at the event. Ben Stiller and Robert Downey Jr. have already signed up to present “Tropic Thunder” in San Sebastian.

Its Donostia Prizes, which sometimes go to Hollywood talent, will be announced Friday when the Spanish moviethon reveals its full line-up.

Fest runs Sept. 18-27.
