In an industrial warehouse on the outskirts of Madrid, the final touches are being added to the sets that will be the backdrop for half of the scenes in Golem, the new escapade by Burnin' Percebes, the duo made up of Juan González and Fernando Martínez, directors of cult titles such as Searching for Meritxell, Ikea2 and The Queen of the Lizards [+leggi anche:

"This looks like Algete-wood", jokes Hernández enthusiastically in front of the enormous set, worthy of the Mecca of cinema, which recreates the rooftop (surrounded by a magnificent backdrop reproducing the Madrid skyline, showcasing brutalist architectural details) and the home of the star of his new project, the biggest project to date for the winner of the John Cassavetes Award at the 2018 Independent Spirit Awards for Life and Nothing More [+leggi anche:

Filming will start on Golem on 17th August, and for five weeks the main character, Juan, played by Brays Efe (popular after playing Paquita Salas in the acclaimed series of the same name), will live on the set, where, from the very first scene, he will be involved in a plot as surreal as it is Kafkaesque. His friend David, drunk after a crazy night of partying, falls naked from the roof of his building and lands on a car parked in the street, shattering into a thousand pieces like a porcelain vase. But this will surprise no one... well, only him. From then on, he will dive into an adventure he never imagined, where it will even rain pianos.

We won't reveal any more of the plot. A comedy of entanglements and magical realism, with a touch of thriller and fantastic cinema that is written by its imaginative directors, who play in the same narrative/humoristic league as filmmakers such as the Coen brothers, José Luis Cuerda, Spike Jonze, David Robert Mitchell and Pedro Almodóvar, and where shady organisations, emotional dependencies and complicated parent-child relationships come into play, reflecting the absurdity of the times in which we live.

Completing the spectacular cast of what is undoubtedly one of the most incredible films of 2023 are Luis Tosar (who we recently saw in Maixabel [+leggi anche:
