Selfie

Loading...
Bosco (Santiago Alveru) has the typical life of a wealthy Madrid family offspring, living in a huge house in the outskirts, going out with flighty, attractive Paula (Clara Alvarado) and studying for the requisite MBA. But early on, his politico father is arrested and jailed on multiple corruption charges (something that's been happening a lot recently in real-world Spain) and suddenly his world falls apart. The family's possessions are seized; Paula will soon leave Bosco; and he's asked to drop his course of study. In other words, when the money goes down, everything else goes down with it — except, inevitably and comically, Bosco's sense of social superiority.

Antonio Buero Vallejo: A Fondo—In Their Own Words

In 1976, a singular Antonio Buero Vallejo (Guadalajara, 1916 - Madrid, 2000) states "Sloth is the most beautiful of all vices."

Keep in mind that I have been in the theater for 27 years and I have released 20 pieces in round numbers." The appearance of his first work, Historia de una escalera (1947), is "a kind of breaking point in Spanish theater. I was simply trying to write a theater according to my sensitivity and in accordance with my concerns. " His later works include The Skylight (1967) and The Dream of Reason (1969): "In my theater there is a certain quixotic vein. I think one of my literary influences is that of Cervantes, and that of Don Quixote. "

It was three months to turn eighty, and for eighty minutes everything was discussed, or almost everything, allowing us to approach, as in no other document, his personality, with polemical and forceful statements: "I smoke to look for adjectives ... I have no envy and that is why I am relatively happy ... I am a chafardero and a constant talker ... Irony is the impossibility of saying something ... The Castilian language is a long phrase that ends up in fishtail ... I drink whiskey constantly ... Spaniards are historically dissatisfied ... I think the man who reads novels from the age of thirty-five is a jerk ... The most characteristic feature of Pla : the ignorance."
