I have mentioned before how The Strand on BBC World Service has occasionally sparked interest in a film that I may have otherwise missed. In what is either a twist of irony or just a coincidence The Strand highlighted Spanish-language cinema at the Goya Awards on February 15. That is the date we met last, and had our own criticism of the Spanish-language film "The Last Circus (Balada triste de trompeta.)"
In another twist, Álex de la Iglesia, who directed the film, is a former President of the Spanish Film Academy, which awards the Goya. He resigned his post in 2011 over a new Spanish anti-download law.
