ABRACADABRA (2017)

Q&A with filmmaker Pablo Berger

In Pablo Berger's (BLANCANIEVES, TORREMOLINOS 73) dark comedy, Carmen (Maribel Verdú, PAN'S LABYRINTH, Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN) and Carlos (Antonio de la Torre, MARSHLAND, THE MOTIVE) are an ordinary couple from Madrid — she's a devoted homemaker and he's a construction worker who lives and breathes for Real Madrid. When the pair attend their nephew's wedding, Carmen's cousin Pepe (José Mota, HELLBOY II) sees a chance to demonstrate his amateur hypnosis act — with Carlos as the guinea pig. As Carlos and Pepe step onstage, an unwanted spirit crashes the show. Nominated for eight Goya Awards in 2017, Berger's comic fantasy is a genre-hopping, fun-filled, absurdist cinematic ride. Official Selection, 2017 Toronto and London film festivals. DIR/SCR/PROD Pablo Berger; PROD Ibon Cormenzana, Ignasi Estapé, Mercedes Gamero, Mikel Lejarza. Spain, 2017, color, 96 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. RATED R
