Barcelona Summer Night Film Poster


Director: Dani de la Orden. Starring: Miki Esparbé, Joan Dausà, Claudia Vega. Catalonia 2013. 95 mins.Catalan/Spanish with English Subtitles Although it was released in 2013, it remains unseen in the UK and it is the first film in a diptych about Barcelona that we are premiering this year. It has often been compared to Love Actually, but set in Barcelona, and there are certainly similarities in the structure and with love stories being the main ingredient in both films, although Barcelona Summer Night focuses on the romantic problems and joys of a younger generation. On the night of the 18th August 2013, Barcelona's skyline was illuminated by the passing of the comet Rose, a spectacle that will not be seen again for several hundreds of years. On that same night, new relationships came into bloom while others faded away. Whispers of sweet nothings, throes of passion, love and tears… all played their part. That night there were 567 love stories being played out under the Barcelona sky – the film includes six of them. This is a fresh and joyful film that was a massive success in Spain and struck a chord with young audiences. It is the first feature of Dani de la Orden, who succeeds in uniting all the different stories cohesively. CFF 15
