O.V. in Spanish

Dani Rovira, Cecilia Suárez (La casa de las Flores) and José Sacristán star in Fernando Colomo's latest film, which also features Fernando Esteso himself and Willy Montesinos (the legendary "mambo taxi" driver). A family film that brings us back to that moment when magic was still trusted, while fiction coexists with reality. Miguel and Laura decide to spend Christmas with their children in a cabin in the mountains. The grandfather, who has magical powers, cannot accompany them, so the children steal his magic ball that grants wishes. They end up spreading chaos after bringing the snowmen to life, in a story by David Marqués (Goya-winning screenwriter for Campeones) inspired by the Filomena storm.

Fernando Colomo

Born in Madrid, at the age of 75, he is one of the most popular filmmakers of Spanish cinema born during the Transition period, a representative of the New Comedy scene in Madrid thanks to short films such as Pomporrutas imperiales (1976) and hits such as Tigres de papel (1977), ¿Qué hace una chica como tú en un sitio como este? (1978) and Estoy en crisis (1982). Following the creative turnaround of La línea del Cielo (1983) and the economic disaster and accidental shooting of El Caballero del Dragón (1985), Colomo returned to the path of box-office success with La vida alegre (1987) and Bajarse al moro (1988). And he signed one of the most memorable series of the 80s: Las chicas de hoy en día. His long career includes other titles such as Alegre ma non troppo (1994), Los años bárbaros (1998), Al sur de Granada (2003), Rivales (2008), Isla Bonita (2015), La tribu (2018) and Poliamor para principiantes (2021). Among the many awards he has received in his career are those from the Cinema Writers Circle, two Sant Jordi Awards and the José María Forqué Award.
