José Luis Adserías,
A family seen at two different periods, some 40 years having passed between the two. A dysfunctional family marked by what used to be called an ugly illness, cancer and death. The characters quarrel, hate each other, and refuse to accept in their predecessors what they will eventually, inevitably repeat in themselves. A family marked by relations of rejection, love and hate of the other, the upstairs neighbors, those strangers from a far-off land, Andalusia in the 1960s, Morocco at present, who will also form part of this repetitive game that is life. To what point is everything a metaphor or symbol of our society? Are we really strangers to ourselves?Written by
Sometimes as the life of each of us ... especially in Spain !
I had the privilege to attend the inauguration of Forasters with the Catalan director Ventura Pons and the actors of the film, to Barcelona.
Forasters is a film of current customs which tells the story the same family which lives two traumatic facts with forty years of difference and the arrival of new neighbors so foreign, what redraws and emphasizes the immigration with its pros and its double.
It is true that the beginning of the film make that we feel as nailed in the armchair and sometimes we intend to lower eyes because gestures and especially the dialog are emotional and hard but so realistic that it is difficult finally for the spectator not to recognize it sometimes in moments of our life.
