Spanish Film Club - Film Screening

Thursday 19 January at 5.30pm in Pearse Street Library.

El verdugo (The Undertaker) (90 minutes). This 1963 black comedy was directed by Luis García Berlanga and written by Rafael Azcona. Cast includes, Nino Manfredi, Pepe Isbert, Emma Penella, José Luis Lópes Vázquez.

An old executioner in the Spain of early 1960's is approaching retirement age. He’s a gentle, caring man, proud of traditions and begins to worry about who might take his place when he retires. His daughter’s problem is that any man who is interested in her quickly loses interest when they discover her father’s profession. The local undertaker, a handsome young man, has the same problem. Any woman who becomes interested in him is repelled by his profession.

A happy ending for both seems to be on the cards when they get together. Their relationship blossoms and they decide to get married. The executioner has no objection to the marriage, the young undertaker seems to be a decent young man, however he has a condition!
Light refreshments and chat from 5pm. Spanish with English subtitles
