Life and death come together in this outrageously funny and original comedy by comedian Paco León (Carmina or Blow Up) where he proofs himself a worthy successor of Almodóvar. Typically Spanish and wonderfully universal, Carmina & Amen joyously breaks taboos and brings back echoes of much-beloved films such as Volver.
After the sudden death of her husband, Carmen convinces her daughter, Maria, not to announce his passing until she’s been able to get paid the bonus he was due. Over two days, they will have to hide the corpse and mask their mourning within the daily comings and goings of an apartment block in a poor neighborhood in Seville.
