After the success of Arrugas (2011), we’re thrilled to present a second film from comic strip artist Paco Roca, an autobiographical story adapted for the big screen in partnership with Diana López and Ángel de la Cruz. The classic 2D animation is book-ended by live-action scenes with Raúl Arévalo, a familiar face for ¡Viva! fans. Paco, a 40-something bachelor from Barcelona, finally sees his childhood dream come true: a job working from home in his pyjamas. Just when he's reached the zenith of personal happiness, however, he falls in love with a woman who’s not convinced his main objective in life should be to remain at home in his pyjamas. A delightful ‘coming-of-age’ comedy for big kids who never want to grow up.
Part of ¡Viva! Spanish & Latin American Festival 2019 tour, presented by HOME, Manchester, with the support of the BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery.
