Description: Actors and egos are lampooned in this witty satire written and directed by Spanish filmmaker Joaquin Oristrell. Isabel (Veronica Forque) is a popular acting teacher running a school in Madrid. One day, she runs across a script written by famed film director Mario Fabra (Daniel Jimenez Cacho). As she reads it, she realizes that the script is about a brief but unforgettable fling she had with the filmmaker 21 years previous. She promptly calls up Mario and arranges lunch. Their reunion is nervous and awkward as if their ardor has not cooled one whit in spite of the fact that each is involved with someone else -- Isabel is dating a younger acting coach named Alberto (Jorge Sanz) while Mario is with a beautiful though neurotic TV star named Cecilia (Candela Pena). For his latest film, Mario is looking for fresh faces and asks Isabel to line up some of her better students for an audition. Soon everyone in the school is preparing scenes from theater's canon of masterpieces, from Hamlet to Oedipus. In the process, actors clash and egos inflate. This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival.~ Jonathan Crow, All Movie Guide
