HEIFER, THE

[LA VAQUILLA]
During the Spanish Civil War, the Nationalists and Republicans find themselves equally bored and famished along the Aragon frontline. When a nearby village announces a festival in celebration of their patron saint — which includes a fabulous bull run and banquet — the Nationalists find their spirits stirred. Meanwhile, the Republicans concoct a harebrained scheme to steal the bull, ruin the festivities and feed their own empty stomachs. Luis García Berlanga's THE HEIFER is an uproariously funny send-up of the Spanish Civil War that took 30 years to get made (supposedly Franco himself saw an early script, and commented simply, "Too soon"), and then ended up being the biggest-budgeted film in Spanish cinema history. DIR/SCR Luis García Berlanga; SCR Rafael Azcona; PROD Alfredo Matas. Spain, 1985, color, 122 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
