Cell 211 amongst Golden Globe finalists

Daniel Monzon's Celda 211/Cell 211, co-produced by Galician Vaca Films, has been admitted amongst the 69 finalists as the best foreign language film for the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards, to be held next Sunday 17th January. Besides Cell 211, Spain is also represented with Pedro Almodóvar’s Los abrazos rotos and Fernando Trueba’s El baile de la Victoria.

Cell 211 collected 1.4 MEuro last weekend, and ranked 6th among the films shown at Spanish theaters. The film has collected 7 MEuro since his premiere five weeks ago. Cell 211 is having its New York premiere next Friday and will be shown in US cinemas next year.

The film tells the story of two men on different sides of a prison riot: Malamadre, the inmate leading the rebellion, played by Galician Luis Tosar, and the young guard trapped in the revolt, who poses as a prisoner in a desperate attempt to survive the ordeal.
