BLACK BREAD (Pa Negre)
Directed by: Agustí Villaronga / Catalonia / 108 min / 2011 / Catalan with English subtitles
Andreu comes across the bodies of a father and son in the forest. Leaning over the dying boy, Andreu hears him whisper “Pitorliu”—the name of a monster supposedly haunting local caves. But the real monsters in this brilliant adaptation of Emil Teixidor’s novel are the local Fascists, who keep close watch on the family of Andreu and other Republican sympathizers—and who think Andreu’s father might know more about these murders than he admits. Reminiscent of Pan's Labyrinth and adored by audience and critics alike, Black Bread won an unheard of number of prizes, including 9 Goya Awards. It was the Spanish selection for the 2011 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Film.
