"THE ODD-JOB MEN" WIN BIG IN LOCARNO
We are excited to announce that Mohamed Mellali
and Valero Escolar
have been awarded with the distinct honour of Best Actor Award
in Locarno Competition
for their roles in THE ODD-JOB MEN
"The director plays with documentary and fiction forms effectively, which makes us see the characters as real people. The film is charming, fun, and entertaining, however the bittersweet humour adds deeper layers to it. This timely, relatable and down-to-earth comedy deserves to be shown to a wider audience."
(The Europa Cinemas Label Jury)
And we are thrilled to say that the YOUNG INDEPENDENT JURY
gave THE ODD-JOB MEN
a SPECIAL MENTION
"THE ODD-JOB MEN follows Moha during his trial week as an odd-job man with Valero, with whom he has a love-hate relationship. This comedy manages to tackle the thematic of integration with genuineness and lightness."
(The Young Independent Jury)
Congratulations to Neus, Mohamed, Valero and the entire team!
