Lázaro de Tormes
Made in Spanish

A mature Lázaro de Tormes is obliged to convince a court in Toledo that his way of life for the previous thirty years has been due to the need to overcome hunger rather than the desire to commit crime. During his fiery declaration, he mixes past, present and future events with the intention of amusing the audience, while weaving a web of characters and customs from the period and referring with similar irony to the clergy, the powers-that-be and the people. Lázaro de Tormes contains one of the last performances by the great Paco Rabal.
FERNANDO FERNAN-GOMEZ, JOSE LUIS GARCIA SANCHEZ The 1999 San Sebastian Festival added its name to the list of those to have dedicated an important prize to the career of this great actor, director and writer, Fernando Fernán-Gómez, on presenting him with its Donostia Award. He is likewise the first actor to have been appointed Académico de la Lengua Española. José Luis García Sánchez, a prolific director and screenwriter, won the Golden Bear at Berlin with Las Truchas (1977) and the Silver Shell at San Sebastian with La corte de Faraón (The Court of the Pharaoh, 1985).
