Kiki, Love To Love27th July, 2017
A scorching summer heatwave intensifies the desires of a collection of Madrid lovers in this playful, provocative and award-winning comedy that became a massive sleeper hit at the Spanish box office in 2016.
Across five separate stories, Kiki: Love to Love’s charismatic characters all share one thing in common: an unusual impulse that they are unable to suppress. Determined to shed the self-imposed inhibitions prompted by their desires, these madrileños embark on an hilarious series of adventures in which no pleasure can – nor will – be denied.
Freely adapted from Josh Lawson’s The Little Death, the Aussie source proves to be a perfect match for the handsome, adorable and slightly daffy persona of Goya-nominated writer/director & star, Paco León (SFF14 favourite Three Many Weddings). But his stylish injection of Latino spirit and an Almodóvar-esque blending of comedy and pathos makes the film irresistibly unique – in no small way thanks to his talented ensemble of Spain’s brightest young actors, including Candela Peña and SFF 2016 guest Alex Garcia.
WINNER: Best Comedy Film, Feroz Awards, 2017
NOMINATED: Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Song, Best New Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Goya Awards 2017.
