Bar (The)

Original title : El bar

A typical, sunny morning in the Spanish capital. Beautiful Elena is walking through the city streets while she’s chatting on her mobile about her love live. She decides to have a coffee in a nearby bar, where the patrons are already gobbling up their breakfast. Suddenly a loud bang sounds in the streets. In front of the bar lies the body of a man with a gunshot wound to his head. One of the clients dares to venture outside… and undergoes the same fate. The others panic and desperately search for cover. What the hell is going on? Why are the streets deserted? Is there a sniper on the roofs? Does anybody in the bar have something to do with this? If they’re going to survive this, they’ll have to work together. But that’s easier said than done!

BIFFF regular Alex De La Iglesia has another delight in store for us. His latest film entirely takes place in a bar, where a colorful bunch of characters will collide with each other. From one moment to the next, they can switch from solidarity to selfishness, from helplessness to pity and from compassion to hate. The Bar is a very feisty thriller and a delicious dark comedy as only De La Iglesia is capable of delivering. The cast is led by Blanca Suarez (Neon Flesh, My Big Night) as Elena, with solid support by Mario Casas (The Invisible Guest, Witching and Bitching), Terele Pavez (The Last Circus) and Jaime Ordonez (Torrente).
