The Tribe

La Tribu
Sublime…[Paco León] continues to nail comedy.
El Palomitrón

In the spirit of The Full Monty, this female-driven story of family reconciliation is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser packed with music and laughs. It doesn’t matter if you are out of shape, over the hill or underqualified, come join ‘The Tribe’ and dance your troubles away!

The fabulous Carmen Machi (Spanish Affair SFF15) plays Virginia, a cleaning lady whose true calling is street dance. She is reunited with the son she gave up for adoption: Fidel (Paco León, Kiki, Love to Love SFF17), an executive who has lost it all, including his memory after a freak accident. Together with “The Mommies”, the outlandish dance group Virginia’s classmates have formed, mother and son will discover that they may come from very different worlds, but the same rhythm runs in their veins.

Inspired by the self-styled Las Mamis dance troupe who swept ‘Spain’s Got Talent’ in 2016, this joyous film from one of Spain’s most respected filmmakers and actors, Fernando Colomo (Isla Bonita SFF16), is sure to get you into the groove!
