THE GREAT LEAP FORWARD

THE GREAT LEAP FORWARD

Pablo Llorca

Pablo Llorca | Spain | 2014 | 87 min. | V.O. Spanish subtitled in English

Fernando, a mature man, in a slump financially and also health wise, collapses in a bar and is taken home by Andrés, a primary school teacher. There, Andrés meets Elena, Fernando’s young, attractive Mexican wife. From that day on, and thanks in part to chance, their lives will become entwined. And while Fernando’s state declines and the bonds between Andrés and Elena grow stronger, a complicated game begins which reveals various difficult subjects. To begin with, the difficulty in following the rules of system that doesn’t play fair, and the difficult moral dilemma this presents. And, as a follow-on, the progressive limitations on public health and education, and the consequences of this process on people’ s lives.
