Premier mundial

Leopoldo is an 11-year-old boy who grew up surrounded by artists. During the three months of spring (the film begins on September 21st and ends on Christmas Day) the boy founds love with a young poetry classmate and experiences his first heartbreak.

Alone or as part of a group, Santiago Giralt has a special preference for actors; not only as part of his films, but also because he’s interested in acting and rehearsals as subjects. In Primavera, he goes one step beyond: there are rehearsals, but also coexistence, arguments and growths among families, couples, directors, managers, and other roles that have to do with actors and actresses; even children. But Primavera, from its very name, also promises an awakening: this film by Giralt is full of colors, humor, shouting, euphoria, romance. It isn’t easy to work with a cast that includes so many recognizable names and faces, but it’s even harder to narrate conflict after conflict without a pause, and doing so with expository clarity. Giralt conducts an enormous orchestra and achieves the exact tone he’s looking for: one strident and far from any kind of apathy. JPF
