Pana­ma­nian com­edy with hint of Romeo And Juliet

Bangkok Post - - LIFE / HAPPENING -

TK Park will con­tinue the Con­tem­po­rary World Film Se­ries with a screen­ing of Don­aire Y Es­plen­dor (Grace & Splen­dour) from Panama on April 28 at 4pm. This is the first time a Panama movie will be pre­sented in Thai­land.

Di­rected by Ar­turo Mon­tene­gro, the ro­man­tic com­edy is one of the new­est films from the Cen­tral Amer­i­can na­tion and has won the hearts of au­di­ences since its re­lease last Septem­ber.

Hailed as the Romeo And Juliet of car­ni­val com­edy, it has a large and as­sorted range of colour­ful char­ac­ters, plenty of fun, ac­tion, melo­drama, rib­ald hu­mour, in a film that is both so­cial com­edy and sump­tu­ous en­ter­tainer.

It por­trays the beauty, en­ergy and va­ri­ety of this unique coun­try, with its lush beaches, moun­tains and lively cityscapes, not to men­tion pas­sion­ate peo­ple and stun­ning Car­ni­val spir­its.

Set in the small town of Las Tablas, the film cen­tres on the ri­valry be­tween the res­i­dents of Up Street and Down Street, each headed by Car­ni­val Queens who hate each other. A ma­jor cri­sis erupts in the town when the sul­try daugh­ter and the hand­some son of the ri­val streets fall pas­sion­ately in love with each other. The mat­ter has to be re­solved, and this hap­pens dra­mat­i­cally, dur­ing the peak Car­ni­val pe­riod.

The screen­ing is sup­ported by the Em­bassy of the Repub­lic of Panama whose Am­bas­sador Maria del Car­men Martinez will in­tro­duce the film. Snacks and drinks will be served af­ter the screen­ing.

The film is in Span­ish with English sub­ti­tle. TK Park is on the 8th floor, Zone D of Cen­tralWorld, Ratchadamri Road. En­try fee is 20 baht.
