Recent Spanish Cinema 2020 – Closing Night
1995, 99 min, Spain/Italy, Dir: Álex de la Iglesia. Two-thousand years after the birth of Christ, the Anti-Christ is about to be born - unless Father Ángel Berriartúa (Álex Angulo) can stop it. The Basque priest believes he can prevent the apocalypse by infiltrating the ranks of the devil, though that will require him to trade in his pious life for one of non-stop sin. Aided by a heavy metal fan (Santiago Segura) and an occult TV show host (Armando De Razza), Ángel raises hell through Madrid as Christmas Eve - and the possible end of the world - approaches in Álex de la Iglesia's wickedly funny cult classic. In Spanish and Italian with English subtitles.
