Only Lovers Left Alive O.V.S
Written and directed by Jim Jarmusch
Beds is an ephemeral cinema hall – in original version – in which for a week beds susbtitute the regular seats. A different way to watch a movie, changing position and space. From Thursday 19th to Wednesday 25th of September 15 beds were installed in the Punta Begoña Galleries, and the film Only Lovers Left Alive will was shown, a british-german fantasy directed by Jim Jarmusch.
Director, scriptwriter, productor, editor and composer from the United States, Jim Jarmusch is one of the maximum references of independent cinema since de 80’s.
Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?

What the critic says:
“A film that confirms the deep coherence in the filmography by Jim Jarmusch, one of the las poets of the cinema. (…) A mayor and disillusioned piece of work that doesn’t give up on humor, nor love. “
Jordi Costa: El País Newspaper
“Only lovers left alive is a unique film. The best kind of cinema one can encounter nowadays. A piece of work by a limitless filmmaker, capable of doing what he wants whenever he wants”
Alejandro G. Calvo: Sensacine
“Great film by a nocturnal and calm Jarmusch […]. Extraordinary filmic style by a filmmaker who turns his cinematographic speech more accesible.”
Javier Tolentino: El Cine que me Importa

“It’s us vampires who trace History, the ones who whisper to the human zombies whick way should they take […]. Life is vulgar enough, the only thing that saves us is the possibility to love. It’s not strange that love creates addiction, there’s nothing more worth the effort, excepting music and art.”
