The Other Way Around, the new feature by Jonás Trueba, starring Itsaso Arana and Vito Sanz, will enjoy its world premiere in the Directors’ Fortnight of the 77th Cannes Film Festival.

Penned by the director himself as well as by the lead actors, the film was shot in Madrid last autumn and tells of how, after 15 years together, Ale and Alex organise a party to celebrate their breakup… This announcement leaves their loved ones bewildered, although they stand firm in their decision to split up. Or perhaps they don’t?

“I think my previous films did have some humour to them, but with The Other Way Around, I felt like making more of a straight-up comedy. The premise revolves around an idea that’s a bit paradoxical – a couple who decide to celebrate their breakup,” states the director in a press release. “It was also a good excuse to once again get Itsaso Arana [whom we saw recently in her directorial feature debut, The Girls Are Alright [+leggi anche:

by David Trueba, Jonás’s uncle, last month at Málaga] back together as the lead couple, and to work with the dream team, as always: these are cast and crew I’ve been working with since my first film. The feeling of getting older together is exciting.

In addition, Trueba is one of the founders, alongside Javier Lafuente, of Los Ilusos Films, a production company with which he has staged all of his movies and with which he produced The Girls Are Alright (2023), the feature debut by Itsaso Arana, which also took part in Karlovy Vary. 

The Other Way Around is a production by Spanish outfit Los Ilusos Films, and France’s Les Films du Worso and Arte France Cinéma, and it will hit Spanish cinemas on 30 August, courtesy of Elastica.
