The largest spanish show of the 7th art novelties is held from 21 to 29 of September 2012. And it takes place in one of the most beautiful places in Spain, San Sebastián, also kown as ‘the Pearl of the Bay of Biscay’.
The Donostia prizes in this 60th Edition of the contest come to five world famous movie stars: Oliver Stone, Dustin Hoffman, Ewan McGregor, Tommy Lee Jones and John Travolta. But also will be presented leading movies of the spanish cinema, such as the new movies from directors Pablo Berger, Sergio Castellitos, Fernando Trueba and Eduard Cortés among others.
Also screening out of competition will be McGregor’s latest film “The Impossible”, which we totally want to see. It is a drama based on a true story of a family’s fight to survive during the 2004 tsunami by Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona.
The trailer, which you can see here, let us shocked when we first saw it…
Back to the city itself, if you’re planning to travel to San Sebastián, don’t forget enjoying the restaurant experience of the city, there are more Michelin Stars per capita in San Sebastian than anywhere else in the World and it has been voted as the greatest gastronomic destination in the World. If you are a food lover and a sybarite, visit for example the famous “Restaurante Arzak”, which offers a 180+EUR menu which actually has “eating instructions”!
Well, this is just another excuse to visit our wonderful country! We finish this post with a beautiful picture of the “Playa de la Concha”, the most famous beach of the city and one of the most famous of our country.
