Imagina Intl. Sales Picks Up Colomo’s ‘Isla Bonita’

The new comedy by vet Spanish helmer, choosen to play at San Sebastian’s Zabaltegi sidebar

Madrid-based Imagina Intl. Sales, one of Spain’s top film and TV agencies, has picked up international distribution rights to vet Spanish filmmaker Fernando Colomo‘s new comedy “Isla Bonita.”

Colomo stars in and directs “Isla Bonita,” which will world preem at September’s San Sebastian Film Festival as part of the non-competitive Zabaltegi sidebar.

In the film, Colomo plays Fer, a seasoned publicist flustered by modern times and new generations of women that travels to Menorca invited by his friend Miguel Angel, played by Spanish ad exec and writer Miguel Angel Furones. There he will meet Nuria, an anti-establishment sculptress (artist Nuria Roman), and her daughter Olivia (actress Olivia Delcan).

Living with different acquaintances and new friends will bring Fer a new perspective on life and a connection with an environment that will awake his senses.

Reportedly made with a firm Woody Allen feel, the characters move at an unstoppable pace as they explore the indefinable concept of perfect couple and the search for love, per a Imagina Intl. Sales statement.

“Isla Bonita,” was shot without written dialogues and based on improvisation, so “oozes irony and freshness,” Imagina Intl. Sales added.

Breaking through during Spain’s 1970s transition to democracy, Fernando Colomo’s credits include 1977’s “Paper Tigers,” a milestone portrait of middle-class Spaniards’ stumbling discovery of liberty; “South From Granada,” the 2003 film adaptation of Brit author Gerald Brenan’s same-titled book, and, more recently, period romp “Picasso’s Gang,” released in 2013.
