The VAR was not needed, however virtually. The rule says that whoever wins the script, the course and collects a superb handful of technical awards is, most likely, absolutely the and remaining winner. But guidelines, like bicycles, are for summer time. And in Valladolid, yesterday, it was chilly. Lots. Inside and out of doors the fairgrounds the place the Goya Awards.

From the start it was clear that each one the awards whose recipient is somebody who must test the identify on IMDB had been for The Snow Society. With which, the primary clue was oriented. The others, no. As far because the script was involved, the 2 favorites took separate paths. 20,000 species of bees was competing for the unique libretto, which it gained, and the journey of the survivors of the Andes for the tailored one, which it misplaced in favor of Pablo Berger by Robot goalssince it’s based mostly on Pablo Virzi's textual content of the identical title

With which, solely the second most essential prize remained, that of director, to attempt to unravel the elemental thriller with a minimal of discover earlier than the ultimate opening of the final envelope. Neither. Estbaliz Urresolachargeable for the story of the trans lady, took the debut course (statue sung like no different) and Juan Antonio Bayona, creator of the best manufacturing within the historical past of Spanish cinema, He added yet another Goya to his assortment of awards for his good and refined methods as an organizer of goals. And there are 4.

Thus, after half-hour after the time set by the group (that’s, at a really ugly two or a half hours within the morning, it’s not clear what day), it was lastly identified that the Spanish movie of the yr was The Snow Society. For her there have been a complete of 12 Goya awards. 12 of 13. Just behind out to sea y Oh, Carmela! concerning the historical past of Spain, cinema and Spanish cinema. That is to say, the forecasts had been blown up that anybody may make their very own after observing what occurred within the awards which have come earlier than. Everything indicated, after what occurred on the Berlinale, on the Mlaga Festival, on the Forqu and even on the Feroz that issues had been going properly. And no, it was survivors. If they managed to get out of the Andes, how may they not get out of the torture (which it’s) of the Goyas. Those.

The Academy consequently adopted what’s now an outcry. The Bayonne movie is a manufacturing for unanimity. And humanity. It is, definitely, everybody's movie. It just isn’t solely an inventive and technical achievement of monumental dimensions for Spanish cinema, however, above all, it’s a disproportionate provocation. The Snow Society speaks of the dignity of what’s shared, of the knowledge of the frequent, of the required vindication of what’s simply in a time, ours, unsure and wildly unjust. Otherwise, the perfect vaccine in opposition to the agitators of polarization (and even pollination). It was not comprehensible that essentially the most related Spanish manufacturing firm in current instances, Beln Atienza, He didn't have a Goya but and he already has one. She and Sandra Hermida, each of them. Waves the. And in the perfect and most resplendent of how.

Whatever it was, the gala adopted the script predetermined by frequent sense. And the sense of artwork too. And even the which means of the grievance in opposition to, amongst different severe points, abuses in opposition to ladies “no matter where they occur,” pressured Vice President Susi Sánchez. Against that and in opposition to the voice of the acute proper that the politician García-Gallardo embodies like nobody else and in opposition to everybody. He stated days in the past in a boast that cinema It was a factor for “gentlemen” and to reply Almodvar No, for Mr. Others. Then Bayona stated that there are statements that disqualify themselves. And so.

The awards society

Slightly greater than a dozen statuettes had been delivered and ten of them had been already a part of the society; of Bayonne, of snow and of the perfect cinema. Julio Surez for the costumes; Pau Costa, Flix Bergs and Laura Pedro for the particular results; Andrs Gil and Jaume Mart for the modifying; Pedro Duque for the images course; Jorge Adrados, Oriol Tarrag and Marc Orts for the sound; Alain Baine for the artwork course; Margarita Huguet for manufacturing administration; Michael Giacchino for the music (which, by the best way, we don't like. It's the one factor we don't like concerning the film) and even the breakout actor Matas Recalt, who was not essentially listed as a favourite, they did full. Everything for them. Or virtually. The gala, when the hour was up, was a monotonous Andean symphony.

It made sense {that a} manufacturing of 60 million funds (the most costly of all) gained the so-called technical awards, however not as a result of it was foreseeable did it appear much less deserved or, if needed, even miraculous. Not in useless, the Bayona movie is about that, concerning the development between each one of many efforts, irrespective of how small, of not solely a unique and liveable actuality within the midst of the best desolation, however of the hope that makes it potential. What builds the movie is identical as what’s seen in it: the conviction of teamwork, of everybody's work, of a job properly completed. It sounds naive and ah, in its readability, its power. Let the cynics burst.

In the actors chapter, few surprises

In the actors' chapter, few surprises. Maybe none. Let's say that essentially the most unsure candidacies, as a result of absence of clear favorites, went to essentially the most veterans. When doubtful, the basic. And so, Jose Coronado He was chosen as greatest supporting actor for his character damaged in two (or three) of the prodigy Close the eyes, by Victor Erice. And so Janet Novs was the revelation for her work within the Golden Shell The cuckold, of Jaione Camborda. Y as Ane Gabarain as non-main actress, for 20,000 species of bees.

That work to the restrictMalena Alterio between comedy and tragedy, between fable and actuality, between insanity and sanity in let nobody sleep was identified was as apparent as, however to proceed with the paradoxes, astonishing. And in the identical manner, that the chosen actor was David Verdaguer for his reconstruction, not imitation, of the humorist Eugenio in They know The One It was the perfect and most severe of the jokes, as befits the character.

Sigourney Weaver, shifting

Otherwise, the celebration of the award for the animated movie for which, in spite of everything this, all of the Oscars await, was enthusiastic. Robot goals It is a movie with out phrases that leaves folks mute (sorry) and that took the award for the screenplay and its personal, the animated one. Elegant, heat and profound, José Sacristín's tribute to the Goya centenary of honor Juan Marin (there are 103 years of life). It is thrilling to see a large who surrenders with emotion to a different large. Dramatic, however enjoyable (it’s honest to confess it), the tribute to the 25 years of Everything about my mom, by Pedro Almodvar. Never earlier than has he been so justified in Goyas' joke and poyas.

Moving, the speech of Sigourney Weaver thanking his voice actor, the Castilian Mara Luis Sol, for his work. And unfair, it should be stated, the vacancy of One Loveby Isabel Coixet.

And the gala, what? The gala handed and handed as all Goya galas move (and there are 38 of them), passing. It is materially not possible for a present of greater than three hours whose essential plot is the moms, fathers and relations of some people with a statuette of their fingers to be simply that, a present. The Academy fi every little thing to the infallibility of Javier Calvo and Javier Ambrossi for whom every little thing seems properly and, though the technique was good, the duty turned out, as soon as once more, not possible. Despite Ana Beln, one other infallible. There needs to be a restrict to musical numbers, for God's sake.

And having stated that, The Snow Society. The author noticed the movie once more on Friday in a screening offered by the director himself in one of many largest cinemas in Madrid and, positively, nobody noticed the twist of seeing Bayona develop into a teenage idol coming. Go for the Oscars, one and the opposite. Memorable. Excessive.
