Black Bread by Agustí Villaronga( Visual )

43 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Spanish selection for the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Film, BLACK BREAD is set in the war-ravaged Catalan countryside of the early 1940's where a local man is accused of murder and his son sets out to find the truth.. Eleven-year-old Andreu stumbles upon a crushed wagon in the underbrush at the foot of a high cliff and witnesses the dying moments of the man and boy inside. When police suspect Andreu’s father of foul play, he goes into hiding and Andreu is sent to live with relatives. There, the frightened boy creates a fantasy life, but is forced to confront a world of adult deception, festering hatreds and the war’s monstrous consequences.. Winner of 9 Goya Awards including Best Picture and Best Director.. “…there is something interesting about every character’s moral ambiguity. Much like the real world, nobody is completely good or bad, and the filmmaker does a great job in portraying their contradictory and complex nature in a non-judgemental way.” – Christopher Bell, INDIEWIRE
