Official Competition

114 minutes 2021 7.0

Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas come together in a firework of a film that takes a loving jab at its own industry with humor and a good dose of sardonic satire. Film director Lola (Cruz) works on her new prestigious project and tries to rein in two acting legends who have huge egos and are fierce rivals. The driven Hollywood star, Félix (Banderas), is used to the limelight belonging only to him, and the radical theater actor, Iván (Oscar Martinez), is only passionate about the true and real art. During the rehearsals, both egocentrics are challenged by the intense and uncompromising Lola, who is not afraid to expose them to danger, traps and humiliations in the name of art. Who will be left when filming finally begins...?
