Penélope Cruz, Antonio Banderas, and Oscar Martínez star as egomaniacs commissioned by a millionaire to make a movie together in this sharp comedy skewering wealth, art, and pride.            

What the critics are saying:

Official Competition does indulge in superficial satire, but Messrs. Duprat and Cohn have devised some plausibly, and hilariously, bizarre scenarios to go with a smart central insight about the nature of film.

Kyle Smith Wall Street Journal

Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat (who also collaborated on the script) have a sharp eye and brilliant timing, and often manage to wring laughs just from the sight of a character picking up an object, or leaving or entering a room.

Matt Zoller Seitz

All three actors are clearly having a blast with this satire of actorly egos and vanity projects, but it’s Cruz who truly dazzles.
