Episode 3: “Elefante”
What would you do if you found out you were turning into an elephant? We talk about that, Kafka, and handball while discussing “Elefante,” a Spanish comedy by Pablo Larcuen. It’s won quite a few awards, and definitely deserved them. The best summary comes from the IMDB page: “Everything will change when the doctor diagnoses him with a rare disease – Manuel is going to turn into an elephant.” If that doesn’t make you want to watch it, I’m not sure what will.
You can watch the film here. It’s in Spanish with English subtitles. If you speak Spanish I would love to hear how accurate the translation is; I’m always curious about this.
