Tim Robbins & Benicio Del Toro Have ‘A Perfect Day’ In Balkans – Cannes Clips

[Watch] A Perfect Day Exclusive Clip from Cannes Film Festival 2015
West End Films

EXCLUSIVE: Spanish director Fernando Leon de Aranoa’s English-language debut¬†A Perfect Day expands the genre definition for political comedy. How so? It’s not often that a Balkans conflict zone is used as a backdrop for comedy. Judging from the trailer and clips, however, Tim Robbins and Benicio Del Toro’s deadpan cadence is quite hysterical. The duo. along with Olga Kurylenko and Melanie Thierry,¬†play foreign aid workers tasked with fishing a corpse out of a water well. The film is playing at the 47th annual Directors’ Fortnight program at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. London-based West Ends Films is handling sales.

In the first scene above, Sophie (Thierry) discovers the group’s problem in the post-war zone. She is soon offended by how the locals are being exploited, given the territory’s dire situation (second clip). Her co-worker Mambru (Del Toro) explains why he can’t offer up a solution.
