‘Death of a cyclist’
Spain, 1955 (80 minutes). Director: Juan Antonio Bardem. Performers: Lucía Bosé, Alberto Closas, Alicia Romay.
The Cannes Critics’ Award guarantees the quality of one of the best films by Juan Antonio Bardem. The story, which starts from a real event, focuses its attention on the prohibited relationship established between a university professor and a married woman. The censorship of the time did not allow Bardem’s script to develop as it should, since neither adultery nor erotic scenes had a place in the cinema of those years. Two excellent actors, Alberto Closas and Lucía Bosé, star in this very interesting work, which contributed to the expansion of Spanish cinema outside the Peninsula.

United States, 1995 (170 minutes). Director: Mel Gibson. Performers: Mel Gibson, Sophie Marceau.
Up to five oscars (film, direction, sound effects, makeup and photography) Mel Gibson achieved with this very interesting epic drama that tells the life of Scottish leader William Wallace. A dozen hydraulic horses, 150 royal horses, 300 volunteers from the Irish forces in the reserve, 600 period costumes and an entire armament of arrows, spears and swords were necessary to shape this independence adventure. The film consecrated, after his failed Man Without a Face, Mel Gibson as one of the most popular filmmakers-actors of the moment. Excellent action sequences and brilliant staging for a truly spectacular film. Do not miss it.
