Con subtítulos en español: Función de Noche (Night Function) 1981

This one really stretched me.It felt a bit like a stage play, with a long-separated couple raking over the ashes of their failed marriage. There was a lot of dialogue, and I frequently had to stop to look up words. But it was brilliantly acted, especially the female lead Lola Herrera – in fact, I don’t know if it even was acted, because the actors played themselves. It felt like a constructed documentary. Perhaps I should have watched it with the English subtitles instead.
