Solier to co-star in Leon’s ‘Amador’

Film to shoot in Madrid, Barcelona

MADRID — Peruvian actress Magaly Solier, who broke through toplining Berlin Golden Bear winner “La Teta asustada,” will co-star in “Amador,” the next film by Fernando Leon (“Princesses,” “Mondays in the Sun”).

Solier plays Marcela, a young woman who, short for cash, agrees to tend to a bedbound aged man, Amador, who’s been left alone for the summer by his family. Both have their secrets, which they confess to one another.

Rolling shortly, mixing drama and humor, “Amador” will shoot in Madrid and Barcelona, mostly in studio interiors.

Cast also features Galician actor Celso Bugallo, the brother in Alejandro Amenabar’s “The Sea Inside.”

The relationship drama will be produced by Leon’s Madrid-based production label Reposado and Mediapro, which produced Isabel Coixet’s Cannes competition player “Map of the Sounds of Tokyo” and has a three-pic co-production and financing deal with Woody Allen, kicking in with Allen’s London-set summer 2009 shoot, starring Naomi Watts, Antonio Banderas and Anthony Hopkins.

Leon is one of Spain’s most popular auteurs. Javier Bardem starrer “Mondays” grossed Euros9.7 million ($13.6 million) in Spain in 2002, and “Princesses” took $8.5 million in 2005.
