With You Bread And Onions

Directed by Juan Carlos Cremata
Comedy, Drama
Running Time: 1hr27mins
Spanish/ English subtitles
Lala will do anything to secure a promising future for her children even though her husband’s salary barely covers such essentials as food, transportation and rent. She enrolls her daughter, against her will, in English language courses and forces her son to quit his job to become a painter. Lala has now set her sights on a refrigerator and come hell or high water, she will buy one. Cremata’s loyal adaptation of Hector Quintero’s irreverent and bittersweet play about keeping up appearances is as relevant today as when it was first staged in 1962.
