‘No time to die’

This week one of the most anticipated releases of this 2021 hits theaters. We refer to the latest installment of the James Bond saga, No time to die. While Daniel Craig repeats as agent 007, Cary Joji Fukunaga is the director of this 25th feature film in the long-running franchise. Now Bond has decided to retire from espionage to enjoy life. His peace of mind is disturbed when a former CIA friend, Félix head (Jeffrey Wright), asks for your help to rescue a prestigious kidnapped scientist. The person responsible appears to be a dangerous villain named Safin (Rami Malek), who seeks to create a powerful weapon to become indestructible. Bond is not alone in this mission, and has the help of a new Agent 00 (Lashana Lynch), as well as M (Ralph Fiennes), Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw).

‘Blessed’

Benedetta is the title of the new job as director of Paul Verhoeven. After passing through the Cannes and San Sebastián festivals, the controversial feature film reaches Spanish cinemas. Based on the real events narrated by Judith C. Brown in her book Inmodest Acts: The Life of a Lesbian Nun in Renaissance Italy, the film takes us to 17th century Italy, to follow Benedetta Carlini, a nun who will alter life in her convent. It all starts when he begins to have strange half-terrifying, half-erotic visions. Tormented, she decides to confess these facts to a young sister with whom she begins a more than spiritual relationship.

The film tells the story of Oscar and Gerard, two lifeguards who travel to the island of Lesbos, after seeing images of a child drowning in the waters of the Mediterranean.

Determined to do their bit in this terrible reality, they give themselves body and soul to try to avoid more deaths like that little one.
