Lead actress Marina Salas came to Cambridge in 2015 to take part in two fascinating Q&As with our Camera Catalonia audiences.

This film is based on a very popular Catalan play from the beginning of the XX century and reminiscent of the work of Marcel Pagnol. It was after translating Pagnol’s Marius that Josep Maria de Sagarra decided to write The Marina Café.

Sílvia Munt, one of Catalonia’s most important actresses has been mostly behind the camera of late. She opens up the play for the cinema medium and manages to orchestrate the cast in this ensemble effort. Love, jealousy, honour, family obligations, poverty and status are all present in the film. 

If you like classical theatre this is your film.
