Maixabel - Eine Geschichte von Liebe, Zorn und Hoffnung
Icíar Bollaín’s new film tells the true story of Maixabel Lasa, whose husband, Juan Marí Jáuregui, a former socialist governor, was killed by ETA. Eleven years later, she receives an extraordinary request: one of the men who murdered her husband wants to meet her. Her lingering grief and numerous obstacles and reservations notwithstanding, Maixabel Lasa agrees to meet the man and enters into a dialogue with him.
"A masterpiece, moving and abounding with optimism, featuring a fantastic Blanca Portilla and an outstanding Luis Tosar … Icíar Bollaín has provided ample evidence of her enormous talent but here she surpasses herself.” Cinemagavia
