‘Vacation in Africa’

See you among the Malawas. Francia, 2019 (93 minutos). Director: James Huth. Performers: Christian Clavier, Pascal Elbé, Michaël Youn.

Sympathetic French comedy about human nature in which a group of famous people live with a wild tribe from Africa. Although the idea is not very original, the good work of its protagonists, led by the always effective Christian Clavier (the popular Delcojón the rascal of Visitors were not born yesterday), it gives it that touch of quirky madness that the idea needed. Fun.

‘The Midnight Express’

Midnight Express. United States, 1978 (121 minutes). Director: Alan Parker. Performers: Brad Davis, Randy Quaid, John Hurt, Bo Hopkins.

Despite a tricky script, manipulated by Alan Parker at will, this film, full of attractions and based on real events, achieved the recognition of both critics and the public. It narrates the extremely difficult moments that a young American has to go through when he is arrested and later imprisoned in a nightmarish prison in Turkey. Complaints against the permanent violation of human rights narrated with crudeness and credibility.

‘The bridges of Madison’

Bridges of Madison County. United States, 1995 (129 minutes). Director: Clint Eastwood. Performers: Clint Eastwood, Meryl Streep, Annie Corley.

Masterful drama with which Clint Eastwood once again savored success. The actor and director adapted the homonymous novel by Robert James Waller into a moving film that talks about love and the consequences of choice. For the protagonists, nothing better than a truly exceptional couple like Meryl Streep, perfect in her difficult role, and Eastwood himself. Good sense of rhythm and an admirable soundtrack complete this great work.

20.06 / Hollywood

Total recall. United States, 1990 (108 minutes). Director: Paul Verhoeven. Performers: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rachel Ticotin, Sharon Stone.

The ways of the life

Anna Camerlingo

There are moments that forever change a life. And for the protagonist of this story that moment came when he received a visit in his workshop with the order to modify the motor of a boat. Four premieres The Devil’s Clocks, an action series inspired by a true story of drug trafficking on an international scale and starring Giuseppe Fiorello and Álvaro Cervantes. Filmed in Italy, Spain and Belgium, it recreates the dangerous odyssey lived by Gianfranco Franciosi, an Italian nautical mechanic whose infiltration work in a drug cartel was decisive in Operation Albatros. Filmmaker Alessandro Angelini directs an international cast that includes prominent Spanish actors such as Alicia Borrachero, Carlos Librado ‘Nene’, Michelle Calvó and Ignasi Vidal. In this first episode, Marco Merani is a naval mechanic who loves his job. When Polverone, one of his best clients, is assassinated, he discovers that the boats he set up for him were used to transport drugs. Days later, some men show up at his shipyard asking him to continue with the work.

24.00 / Telecinco

Mirror Mirror. United States, 2012 (106 minutes). Director: Tarsem Singh. Performers: Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer.

New version of the immortal tale of the Brothers Grimm that tries to separate itself from the classic adaptations, but that remains only a mere exercise of showing off the beauty of the tale, this time, the witch Roberts. Some wise doses of humor and various action scenes enliven the show.

0.02 / Hollywood

‘Network’

The net. United States, 1995 (112 minutes). Director: Irwin Winkler. Cast: Sandra Bullock, Jeremy Northam.

Computer science and the problems that its misuse can cause to society are the true protagonists of this correct intrigue directed by Irwin Winkler, a well-known Hollywood producer involved in directing tasks. For the main role, nothing better than Sandra Bullock, an actress very used to the action genre, as evidenced by her appearances in Speed O Demolition man. A film with abundant doses of emotion and intrigue.

‘Matrix’

United States, 1998 (131 minutes). Directors: Andy and Larry Wachowski. Performers: Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss.

Four oscars endorse the quality of this science-fiction installment that distanced itself from everything seen up to that moment thanks to its spectacular special effects, a reference to many later films, and which contains the effective work of both Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne. Impressive, although its continuations (which are also broadcast this afternoon, Matrix Reloaded Y Matrix Revolutions), generally entertaining for the general public, are not up to it.

1.25 / Movistar CineÑ

‘The Greatest Robbery Ever Told’

Spain, 2002 (114 minutes). Director: Daniel Monzón. Performers: Antonio Resines, Neus Asensi, Manuel Manquiña, Javier Aller.

Now, peculiar thieves (played by a perfectly oiled cast) set out to steal nothing less than the famous Guernica.
