About the movie
To create a lasting legacy, a billionaire businessman decides to make a movie, and hires only the best of the best: a dazzling crew centred around the eccentric auteur filmmaker Lola Cuevas and renowned acting stars Félix Rivero and Iván Torres, both endowed with enormous talent - and even bigger egos.
While the self-absorbed Félix makes a career in Hollywood, the pretentious Iván is considered a radical stage artist. The two self-promoters' conflicting views of their work, as well as Lola's increasingly outlandish acting exercises, soon bring everyone involved to the edge of a nervous breakdown.
"Official Competition" is a delightfully satirical and visually powerful swan song to the movie business that allows the talents of Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas to shine.
