Los Europeos | Directed by Víctor García León
In the late 1950’s, in a Spain bound by goody two-shoes, two friends, Miguel – a young provincial man, designer, living in a boarding house in Madrid, and Antonio – only child of an architect for whom Miguel works – both singles, in their 30’s, go on vacation at Ibiza, attracted by an alleged freedom and the European sexual myth.
But the Island is full of surprises. Once arrived in San Antonio, they meet with a bunch of eccentric people, tragicomic, true castaways who missed the boat of History, that Miguel and Antonio will soon join. While Antonio makes a string of girlfriends, more or less ridiculous, Miguel falls in love with Odette, a beautiful, delicate and smart young Parisian with whom he spends idyllic weeks before dealing with an unexpected existential odyssey in Barcelona, due to an unpredicted pregnancy.His dream will eventually fall apart and he will have to cope his acts, his manliness, his feelings, his values and his fears, in a country subject to a rough guardianship.
With Juan Diego Botto, Raul Arevalo, Stephane Caillard
