Spanish actor Mario Casas is the protagonist of a new film named “Ismael”, which is scheduled to be released on December 25, 2013 in Spain.
The 27 year old brunette plays alongside Spanish actress Belen Rueda, who portrays the role of his mother. In this film of constant evolution, Mario interprets a professor—who after establishing a simple routine in life—finds out he is the father of a young boy. The storyline is filled with surprises and wonderful emotions. The professor is granted an opportunity to discover and learn about this new phase in life that, some way or another, he has been thrown into.
The film was directed by Argentinian writer and director Marcelo Pineyro, who rose to fame in his native country with his work in the films “El Metodo” and “Plata Quemada” (both movies grossed millions of dollars at the box office and were released in several countries). Veteran handsome actor Sergi López also makes an appearance—in a supporting role.
The film has attained positive reviews from the Spanish press in several national magazines and on TV. It is a beautiful father and son tale that demonstrates the importance of family union. If the film does well in Spain, it will more than likely be released in other countries as well. And if it doesn’t, there is always the DVD option.
