A puerta fría

A puerta fría

Xavi Puebla

Spain, 2012, 80 min. Spanish



“When did everything started to go wrong?” is what Salva (Antonio Dechent) questions himself in a hotel bar counter where the most important fair in the sector is celebrated. He was the leading seller and will be fired if he doesn’t sell five hundred units in three days. Both being road fighters, expert sellers for years, they stare astonished the generational renewal and disloyalty in a sector which shows itself indifferent to those employees who once were essential and that may become not-essential if they don’t sell enough in the following days of the fair.  In the meantime, Mr. Battleworth (Nick Nolte) waits in his luxury room. He is an agent of the only multinational company willing to open a big mall in the city. This can be the solution for Salva, except that he can’t speak English. But in the crowd of people wearing ties appears a face illuminating everything. Her name is Inés (María Valverde); she’s 18 years old, has beautiful legs and speaks English.
