Preview: Belle Epoque (Bluray)

Academy Award® winner Penélope Cruz (Best Supporting Actress, Vicky Cristina Barcelona – 2009) provides a charming performance in the dramatic ensemble piece Belle Epoque, winner of the 1994 Academy Award® for Best Foreign Language Film.

Spain, 1931 is a politically divided nation and on the brink of war. With allegiances torn between Republican and Traditionalist factions, Fernando (Jorge Sanz, Conan the Barbarian), a disillusioned soldier, has chosen a third option — going AWOL. Fate intervenes during his escape when he meets Manolo (Fernando Fernán Gómez, All About My Mother), an admiring land owner who sees himself mirrored in the young man and welcomes him into his home — a home inhabited by Manolo’s four visiting daughters, each more beautiful than the other. Clara (Miriam Díaz-Aroca, High Heels), Violeta (Ariadna Gil, Pan’s Labyrinth), Rocío (Maribel Verdú, Y Tu Mamá También) and Luz (Penélope Cruz, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) will prove to be more than just a pleasant distraction for Fernando. While seeking refuge from the chaos of the outside world, he’ll find romance at every turn in the witty love story Belle Epoque.

Belle Epoque, director Fernando Trueba’s (The Queen of Spain) 1994 Academy Award® winner for Best Foreign Language Film, is written by Rafael Azcona (from a story by Azcona, José Luis García Sánchez and Fernando Trueba) and co-stars Agustín González (El abuelo) and Chus Lampreave (Volver).
