Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. La Buena Estrella (English: The Lucky Star) is a 1997 Spanish film directed by Ricardo Franco and starring Antonio Resines, Jordi Moll and Maribel Verd . Critically acclaimed, the film won five Goya Awards: Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor (Antonio Resines), Best Original script and Best Original Music. Ricardo Franco made just one more film; he died of a heart attack in 1998. Rafael is a kind, good-hearted butcher. He has a lonely life after accidentally castrating himself while cutting meat several years before, but he longs to have a family life, a dream that seems unattainable for him. One early morning when he is driving his truck to his butcher's shop, he sees a young man assaulting a woman. Rafael cannot help but intervene and jumps out of his vehicle to help her. Taking pity on the girl, he takes her to his home. Her name is Marina and the man who was beating her was her boyfriend, Daniel. Marina, nicknamed One-Eye (for she lost one eye in a childhood accident), tells Rafael how she and Daniel grew up together in a hostile environment in an orphanage, where she was left abandoned by her father.show more
