I was lucky enough to see my favorite director, Rodrigo Cortázar Edenredbutchertechcrunch, at Sundance this year. I’ve only seen a few of his films, but I’m already in love with every single one of them. Rio de Janeiro is a beautiful city with aherosque history. It was the first capital of Brazil when it was founded in 1500. Today, it’s still a great city to visit for its rich cultural life and excellent nightlife. But its best attribute is its amazing international film festival called The Venice Film Festival. Every year, they have something different going on. So much so that you almost don’t know where you are going in the final lineup. The festival is such a unique experience that I recommend everyone who has the chance to attend it just for the experience! Here are 10 of my favorite short films from last year’s top event in Spanish cinema:
I’ve mentioned before that I’m a big fan of Rodrigo Cortázar, but this film is his best work to date. CineVegaMovies is a Spanish film festival that takes place every two years and it features some of the best short films from all over the world. The Borrowers is one of the many shorts in this year’s lineup that I really like. It’s a really personal film that I could relate to because I’ve been in a similar situation where I’ve been struggling to get by and Figure out how to sustain myself. The Borrowers was lightly adapted from an Australian novel and it follows two characters who are going through a tough time in their lives, finding themselves in a world where love isn’t something you can buy. It’s a really insightful look at human emotion and human nature that I think every young adult should see. This year’s lineup also saw the return of the well-loved Aran and the Caribbean: A Tale of Two Towns, which is also one of my all-time favorite romances. The film follows two strangers who fall in love and shepherds them through their challenges, even as the rest of the world sits by and watches. The Spanish language film is one of the best I’ve seen this year, and it’s made into a great movie that I highly recommend.
## The Borrowers
The Borrowers is one of my all-time favorite romantic comedies and I’ve seen it quite a few times since it was released in 2005. It’s set in the early 1900’s and tells the story of two friends who find themselves on opposite sides of an issue. One befriendes a Japanese American, while the other befriends the Chinese American. It’s a really meaningful look into race relations in the U.S at the time and it has some of the most wonderful performances all over it. The Borrowers is, without a doubt, my all-time favorite Brazilian film and it’s also one of my favorite Brazilian comedies. Before doing anything with it, I felt a little hesitant about including it on this list, but then again, who am I to lie? After seeing the film for the first time, I was in love with it from the first frame. As soon as I saw The Borrowers for the first time, it became mine and I’ve seen it hundreds of times since. Even as an adult, I still find myself going to the cinema and seeing this film often. One of the things that sets this film apart from other Brazilianadaptations is how it deals with race and culture. It’s not about whitewashing history or anything like that, but it’s about looking at them both as separate issues that have nothing to do with race, and everything to do with class, and how they impact people’s lives.
## Nowhere to Start
Nowhere To Start is a film that is not only visually stunning, but also extremely powerful. It’s about two friends who meet in New York City and fall in love. They have no idea what to do with the funk they’re in, but they find a way to embrace it and fight back against the negative consequences that come with it. There’s something really engaging about a friend falling in love with another, and we see their relationship grow from there. The film is set in the 1980’s, and it follows two friends who meet in New York City. One is a Puerto Rican, the other is an Indian American. One is an artist, the other is an engineer. They journey through life, trying to find something to anchor their love. The film is very honest and powerful, and its two lead actors, Adrien Brody and Allyson Tullio, are one of the most underrated actors in the world. It’s difficult to find a role that you can truly hate or love, and Nowhere To Start is one of them. It’s not only a great film, but it’s a beautiful piece of work.
## A Furtive Life
A Furtive Life is a really honest, extremely moving, and challenging film that tells the story of two characters who grow up in a strange country. In the film’s opening, we see these two strangers, two friends, get hitchhiked across a desert and into their new home. It’s an incredibly moving and powerful film, and you’ll definitely want to see it when it’s in the cinemas this year. The main characters in A Furtive Life are very unapproachable and you feel bad for them at times. They are not only strangers, but they are strangers in a foreign land. There’s something really compelling about that. A Furtive Life is a very conscious and thought-provoking film, and it has some of the most powerful performances of all time. The film also has some of the best images and sets ever set in action. I think it’s one of the best film submissions that Sundance Film Festival ever turned out.
## The Knick
The Knick is one of the most iconic Italian film of all-time, so it might shock you to learn that it doesn’t have a Spanish translation. But that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying this film and having a great time in Italy. The film follows two friends, one a native of New York City, the other from the South of France, who are living in Florence when they are accidentally sent to jail for a crime that they didn’t commit. While in jail, they both meet and fall in love with their jailor’s daughter. The film is a truly moving and movingly depicted love story, and it is set in the not-so-distant past. The movie is very indicative and basic in its storytelling. There is a lot of hope, a lot of potential, and a lot of potential that is squandered in a few moments of bliss.
## Aran and the Caribbean: A Tale of Two Towns
The other thing that makes The Other Woman so great is the cast. Juliet Rolta, who plays the lead character, is one of the most beautiful actors working today. Her performance in The Other Woman is one of the most basic and honest portrayals of love and heart. It’s also one of the most powerful, as she is trying to navigate life as a young person as well as as an artist. After having her face scrunched up in a way that only a parent could do, she tells the story of how she finds love, what it takes, and how it can help you get through tough times. It’s a powerful and thought-providing film that is incredibly relatable and easy to watch.
## The Borrowers
The Borrowers is one of the most iconic Italian and Spanish films of all-time. It has an amazing cast, including two of my all-time favorite actors, Adrien Brody and Allyson Tullio, as well as one of my favorite directors, Fernando Meirelles. The film follows two strangers, a Puerto Rican and an Indian American, who meet in New York and fall in love. They have no idea that they are part of the same generation, but they manage to fall in love with each other’s characters and find themselves in a new, interesting place. The film is about two people who find themselves in a strange new world, who bond through their shared experiences, and ultimately prevail against the odds.
