Los Bengalas (Orquesta Los Bengalas)

David Valero Simón - Spain
2020 — Fiction — English subtitles — info@selectedfilms.com

A popular - and now - geriatric Spanish dance band are on their last ever tour, when their bond is challenged by the singer’s increasing dementia. A touching portrait of the route we all are headed - old age. And a son who lovingly tries to hold his father in the role of a singing ladies’ man and thus ensuring his dignity and sanity remains somewhat intact. The bond of friendship and music feels both eternal and fleeting in this filmic paella of Spanish summer vibes.
