A Perfect Day (2015) (HNR)
Release Date: August 30, 2016.
"A remarkable film: a taut, darkly comic drama."
The Globe & Mail.
A group of aid workers tries to remove a cadaver from a well in an armed zone. The body was thrown into the well to contaminate the water and cut the water supply to the local population. But circumstances soon turn a simple task into an impossible mission. The workers cross the frenzied war landscape like guinea pigs in a maze, and there might be no way out. A war inside another war, in which the only enemy could be irrationality. The crisis they're trying to solve is humanitarian, but they're only human. Humor, drama, tenderness, routine, danger, hope: it all fits into a perfect day. This film's only genre is life itself. Like a Russian doll, it's a drama inside a comedy, inside a road movie, inside a war movie. -- (C) TVA, 2015, Spain.
