Part of the array of events taking place this past month in Skopje, was also the Spanish Film Week from the 15th to the 21st of October, organized by the Macedonian Cinematheque and in cooperation with the Embassy of the Kingdom of Spain in Macedonia, aiming to promote Spanish culture through presenting older and newer works of the seventh art. To a great pleasure of the film lovers, seven of the best and most successful Spanish films were shown. The attendees, who were in great numbers during the entire week, were able to enjoy Marcelo Pineyro’s “The Method” which would make anyone wonder where the line between lie and truth is, to see a Spanish-Portuguese film version of a Felix Lope de Vega play in “The Dog in the Manger”, to laugh at someone else’s surviving of a middle-age crisis in “A Gun in Each Hand”. Included in the program were also: “Thesis” by Alejandro Amenabar, “The Grandfather” by Jose Luis Garci, “Sleep tight” by Jaume Balaguero and “Cell 211” by DanelMonzon.
