netted the Forqué Award for best Spanish film of 2016 (see the news), and last night, the directorial feature debut by actor Raúl Arévalo went home with five Feroz Awards, the prizes given out by the Association of Spanish Film Journalists - AICE: Best Supporting Actor (a tremendous Manolo Solo, who builds up an unforgettable, staggering scene-stealer of a character), Best Supporting Actress (Ruth Díaz, who also won an award at Venice, which hosted the film's world premiere), Best Screenplay for Arévalo and his colleague David Pulido (a psychologist who made his screenwriting debut with this movie), Best Director for Arévalo and Best Drama Film of 2016, a trophy that was picked up by Beatriz Bodegas, the courageous producer from La Canica Films, who risked everything by backing a project that had spent years being passed from one office to another.

Another probable victor, after he also came out on top at both the Forqué and the Feroz Awards, is Roberto Álamo, who put on a stunning performance in the thriller May God Save Us [+see also:
