Why watch this film?

A great satire about actors and movie directors with excellent performances by Penélope Cruz, Antonio Banderas and Oscar Martínez. 'Competencia Oficial' tells the comical events of an entrepreneur who hires a filmmaker to help him make a successful movie. The production approaches in a way how actors prepare for a feature film, which is intriguing and serves as a starting point to create a hostile environment between the characters. It's a good movie that not only serves as a distraction, but also takes us a bit deeper into the process that leads to production. 'Competencia Oficial' was screened at the 2021 Venice Film Festival and entered the competition for the Golden Lion.
