Sold out
Lunwerg, 1994. Hardcover. 134 pages and several diptychs posters bound. 30 x 30 cm. Text in English. Used. VG · Light tears at upper spine dustjacket. Here the 'Iberian Portraits’ trilogy's making of, maybe most famous work internationally of our Spanish cult director Bigas Luna. Drawings, photographs of the shooting and team... a incredible book about three iconic Spanish films, 'Jamón Jamón' (1992), 'Huevos de Oro' (1993) and 'La Teta y la Luna' (1994). Full of symbolism, eroticism, gender roles and gastronomy, those GREAT films capture our essence, passion, our gorgeous landscapes, the strength of our light and colors, our traditions, gastronomy... and the national identity which was being reconfigured at that moment. Also you can see a beautiful young Penélope Cruz in her first ever role, where she plays the sensual and liberated Silvia, who falls for Raul (an attractive and young Javier Bardem) in the wonderful and unforgettable Jamón Jamón.
