Among the multiple virtues that we can find in ‘As bestas’, it is clear that the cast shines with a special light.

A masterful interpretation measured to the millimeter that would be more than a clear favorite to take home the Goya if he did not have to compete against…

Although many people were surprised when his nomination was announced, the truth is that Fernando Tejero’s work in the extremely notable ‘Modelo 77’ deserves to be highlighted. Secondary to the manual in what has to do with the time he appears on the screen and the leading role in the story, the character of the Andalusian actor is one of those interpretative gifts that, if used, shines with a special light.

Jesús Carroza is one of those actors who are always good. No matter the role, the weight it has in the story, the genre in which the film takes place or the level of demand it entails, the Sevillian interpreter will be up to the task from the first minute to the last. Of course, ‘Model 77’ is no exception. In fact, we may be facing one of the most complete and emotional works of the actor thanks to one of those characters that mark in a special way to the public despite not having much screen time. However, every minute of Carroza in Alberto Rodríguez’s film is simply a gift. Nomination more than deserved.

His is a character that grows in the final stretch of the film in a way that is as natural and organic as it is devastating on an emotional level. And that merit, in addition to the extraordinary script, lies in the talent of an interpreter who makes the most of each and every one of her scenes.

The thing about Susi Sánchez in ‘Cinco lobitos’ is a real outrage. Delicacy, charisma, presence, sensitivity, tenderness, pain, outburst, containment… a master acting lesson served on a platter of full inspiration by an actress beyond praise.

Penelope Cruz - 'On the Margins'

Penélope Cruz abandons any type of star aura and throws herself into the mire with an excellent performance in ‘En los márgenes’, the directorial debut of a Juan Diego Botto who finds in her the dream accomplice. And it is that, although in a proposal of crossed stories she always costs more to shine above the rest because of what she has as an especially isolated exercise, Cruz’s work is unquestionable both from the deafening silence and from the quiet scream. An interpretation at its height, that is, of the exact dimensions of a giant.
