Spanish Film Festival - The Distinguished Citizen

Spanish Film Festival
What could be better than winning the Nobel Prize for Literature? For Barcelona novelist Daniel Mantovani (Oscar Martínez) everything, as it turns out. To become part of the establishment and someone whose work everyone can agree on, signals, for him, the end of his career. Opening with his hilariously ungracious speech as he accepts the award in Stockholm, the film jumps forward five years where we find the taciturn author turning down every award that comes his way. But when a curious offer appears, to accept the "Distinguished Citizen" award from the small Argentinian backwater of Salas, Mantovani's birthplace (and the inspiration for much of his fiction), the writer senses a chance to reconnect with his roots and maybe even find inspiration in a town he hasn't stepped foot in for over 40 years.
