THE shortlist for Spain’s Oscar submission has been announced, with Carlos Marques-Marcet’s 10,000 KM, Daniel Monzon’s El Nino and David Trueba’s Living is Easy with Eyes Closed making the cut.
Though all box office successes, the three films could hardly be more different.
Action-packed El Nino is a tense thriller exploring social issues; 10,000 KM provides an examination of Spain’s youth diaspora and classic art house film; and, Living is Easy with Eyes Closed is a romantic tale set in the Franco era.
It will be decided on September 25.
