Other keys to enjoy Wednesday in theaters


  • Pay attention to the last screenings of the following films:

The Elder Museum programs Lo Chiamavano Jeeg Robot, last winner of the David di Donatello. The No Future cycle goes on both at the Monopol Multiplex and at the Elder Museum of Science and Technology. Lo Chiamavano Jeeg Robot (Gabriele Mainetti, Italy, 2015, 117 min.), starred by the “first neorrealist superhero”, won the last edition of the David di Donatello Award, granted by the Academy of Italian Cinema. It is, according to Jesús Palacios, “an unusual combination of sordid romanzo criminale and manga, fou love and violence, humor and action, that provides a clever answer, as dirty as poetic and sophisticated, against Hollywood spectacles”. It will be screened on Wednesday 5, at 6 p.m., at the Elder Museum’s big screen.

Olivier Assayas and Kristen Stewart, together in Panorama. The ideal section to find the meaning of the expression “festival films” is Panorama. On Wednesday 5, at 10 p.m., Olivier Assayas’ last film, Personal Shopper, will be screened for the last time, starred by American actress Kristen Stewart, and thanks to which the French author won at Cannes’ last edition the Best Director Award. Stewart plays Maureen Cartwright, a 26-year-old American living in Paris who, while working as an assistant to a supermodel and designer, gets signals from his twin brother, already deceased. Apparitions, voices and texts to her mobile phone make her wonder who is trying to contact her.

Last screenings of Rustlers and Guilty Men, South-American representatives in the official section. This Wednesday is the last chance to see the screenings of the competing feature films Rustlers and Guilty Men. At 8 p.m., at the Monopol’s screen 2, the Argentinean film by Albertina Carri will be screened. It is halfway between documentary and fiction, and seeks to investigate “who are the true rustlers in this country’s history”. Rustlers (Albertina Carri, Argentina, 2016, 83 min.), internationally released at the Mar del Plata Festival and screened as well at Berlin, is entirely shot with archive material dating from 1920 to 1983.

At 10 p.m., at the Monopol’s screen 2 as well, the first film Guilty Men (Iván D. Gaona, 2016, 115 min.) will be screened.  It is a story of peasants, love and suspense in the Colombian rural province of Santander where a truck driver who transports sugar canes wants to win the love of his ex-girlfriend Mariana back, while she intends to marry her new partner. Guilty Men had a significant run at the Venice, Toronto, Warsaw and Bogota festivals.
