European movies featured at festival

Cine Magaly has begun two weeks of European cinema featuring more than a dozen movies for its Festival de Cine Europeo 2014.

Tonight’s lineup begins at 4 p.m. with “Certified Copy,” a 2010 French film that stars Juliette Binoche in an award-winning role as a nameless antiques dealer who begins a strange relationship with a British writer over the course of a day.

Also airing is the Spanish comedy, “A Gun in Each Hand,” which stars accomplished actor Ricardo Darín and focuses on eight men in their 40s undergoing unique identity crises. To round out the night’s movie selection, the 2013 Polish film “Walesa. Man of Hope” plays at 8:30 p.m. The biographical film follows the true life rise of Lech Walesa from an electrician to a spirited politician who led the workers party against Communist powers. Walesa won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1983 and was Poland’s president from 1990 to 1995.

A full schedule of movies is on the Cine Magaly page on Facebook. Up to four movies will be played daily until July 31.

General admission is 2,000 colons. Admission for students is 1,500 colons and Ciudadanos de Oro card carriers get in for free. Cine Magaly is located in Barrio California, a block south of the Antigua Aduana.
