FILM l Amador : 14 – 17 October, London

From Spain’s Fernando León de Aranoa comes a socially incisive and beautifully performed tale of an unlikely friendship.

Bolivian immigrant Marcela (Magaly Solier) lives in Madrid with her partner Nelson (Pietro Sibille), who makes ends meet by selling flowers on the streets of the city. When the couple’s fridge breaks down, Marcela needs to find a job to make the payments on its replacement so that they can continue to keep the flowers fresh at home. She secures employment taking care of elderly bedridden Amador (Celso Bugallo) while his family are away for the summer. And while the relationship between patient and carer doesn’t appear too promising at first, gradually they find a mutual support and respect that is threatened by an unexpected turn of events.

From Fernando León de Aranoa (Mondays in the Sun) comes a feature that moves from dark comedy to poetic realism. Compelling performances from Magaly Solier (The Milk of Sorrow, LFF 2009) and Celso Bugallo (Night of the Sunflowers, LFF 2006), crisp direction and an eye for the magic in the everyday, render Amador a minutely observed piece of cinema from one of Spain’s most acclaimed and socially incisive talents.
