Actress Isabel (The Orphanage’s Belén Rueda) has just turned 40 and is despairing over her failure to launch. At her country home she assembles her screenwriter beau, a boozing producer and an Argentine comic to concoct that elusive star vehicle. Unexpected guests arrive, among them Isabel’s ex—who winds up dropping dead after ingesting dessert. Whodunnit? Come see!
Spanish director Inés París delighted Miami audiences with her 2007 comedy, Miguel and William. She returns to the Festival in peak form with this unpredictable screwball murder-mystery. Fair warning: you might die of laughter.
This film is also featured in the 2017 Film Festival’s HBO Ibero American Competition Film Category.
