2011, Daniel Snchez Arvalo, Spain, 98 min. Dumped at the altar by his fiance, heartbroken Diego (recent GSFC guest Gutirrez of WITH OR WITHOUT LOVE) retreats to his hometown on the north coast of Spain, with two cousins—ballsy Julian and p-whipped Miguel—along for moral support. Diego seeks out his old flame Martina (Cuesta), as lovely as ever but quite content with her self-sufficient life as a single mom, thank you. Then Diego’s repentant ex shows up to make his romantic picture even cloudier. Director Arevalo (GORDOS, DARKBLUEALMOSTBLACK) enlivens this bouncy blend of romance and bromance with movie in- jokes and a flair for quirky comedy. In Spanish with English subtitles. 35mm print courtesy of Film Factory Entertainment. (MR)
