CUÑADOS (Brothers-in-law)
(Galician with English subtitles)

Eduardo and Sabonis, brothers-in-law married to sisters Cuca and Peque Ribeiro, have made a real mess of one of their business ventures and are in need of money. Lots of money. Sabonis, in one of his uncontrollable fits of rage, comes up with a plan to fix all their problems in one go: to kidnap Modesto, who is brother-in-law to Alicia Zamora, the businesswoman who screwed them over. There’s just one problem: Alicia has no intention of paying a penny to get her brother-in-law back. In the end, it will be Modesto himself who comes up with a new plan to help Eduardo and Sabonis get the money they need to save the family wine business. What they don’t know is that Mati, police officer and Ribeiro’s middle sister, is on to their little plan. Eduardo, Sabonis and Modesto have everything to lose, but as Sabonis would say, what could go wrong?


Toño López (Ourense, 1971) studied film and television both in Coruña and in his hometown. Focused on fiction, he directed series such as Mareas vivas, Nada es para siempre, Matalobos, Luci, 4º sen ascensor or Auga seca. The most international and music-loving audience may know him from series such as The Avatars or Idol X Warrior: Miracle Tunes!

Toño will be with us at the screening of Brothers-in-law to discuss what this new experience meant to him in his film career and to confirm (or not!) what we all think: that the humour and joy of his last film was also present behind the scenes.
