The Sitges International Film Festival of Catalonia screens the world premiere of the movie Long Weekend, directed by Jaime Blanks.
Long Weekend, that heralds a big box office hit, stars Jim Caviezel and Claudia Karavan. The movie is a remake of the one that won an award at the 1979 Sitges Festival, Long Weekend.
The film is about a couple going through a crisis that leaves for the weekend to go to a remote spot. What they don't know is that thing will get complicated for them. She can't wait to leave, he runs over a kangaroo, throws a cigarette butt into the woods and a bottle into the sea.
Its Australian director had already depicted a married couple trapped in exceptional circumstances in Store Warning. He now returns with this piece that intends to dynamite the figure of the arrogant tourist.
