With the José Coronado cycle, ViendoMovies continues its support for Spanish-language cinema and its talent. The channel is also characterized by the coverage of the events and festivals where this cinema has its presence and its extensive library allows it to program this type of cycles that cover the entire range of artistic talent and productions in all genres.
José Coronado, born in Madrid, originally began studying Medicine, but after four years of study he decided to start his Law degree. Around that time, he started getting called from modeling agencies and to do some TV commercials. Before turning thirty, he decided to take acting classes and began his career with the participation in a play entitled El Público and in the film Waka-Waka in 1987. Since 1987, he has appeared in more than 50 films and more than 20 series. He has been nominated more than 15 times for prestigious awards such as Best Leading Actor at the Goya Awards, and Best Film Actor at Silver Frames, among others.
The cycle begins with the film El Hombre de las Mil Caras, a Spanish thriller directed by Alberto Rodríguez. Francisco Paesa (Eduard Fernández) is involved in an extortion case and has to flee the country. When he returns years later he is broke. In these circumstances, he receives a visit from Luis Roldán (Carlos Santos) and his wife Nieves Fernández Puerto (Marta Etura), who offer him a million dollars if he helps them save 1,500 million pesetas stolen from the public treasury. The Man with a Thousand Faces has 36 nominations and 24 awards. Among them, Best Director at the Goya Awards, Best Film at the Platino Awards, and Best Screenplay at the ASECAN Awards.
On August 14, the Spanish drama, Fuego, is presented. Carlos (José Coronado) is a policeman. One day, a bomb planted in his car kills his wife and leaves his 10-year-old daughter without legs. He is unharmed. Eleven years later he lives in another city, Barcelona, and seems like a different person; he works in a major security company. His daughter seems to have overcome that harsh trauma, although the physical consequences are indelible. Carlos, on the other hand, despite years of severe psychological treatment, has not overcome it. In his soul there is only room for one feeling that consumes others: hatred. And a single goal: revenge. Fuego received a nomination at the Gijón International Film Festival for Best Film.
Hijo de Caín is scheduled for the 21st. A film with 11 nominations about Nico, a teenager with a peculiar character, exceptional intelligence and a single hobby: chess. Carlos and Coral, worried about their son's strange attitude, decide to hire the child psychologist Julio Beltrán. Through therapy and a common love of chess, Julio will get to know Nico's world and will delve into the complex relationships of this apparently normal family.
To culminate the cycle, Es Por Tu Bien arrives to make the public of ViendoMovies laugh. The jealousy of three parents triggers a very funny comedy. Three brothers-in-law try to separate their three teenage daughters from their unwanted boyfriends.
