FATUM, produced by Vaca Films and starring Luis Tosar (Código Emperador, Hasta el cielo, Maixabel) and Álex García (Antidisturbios, Si yo fuera rico), finishes shooting.
The first feature film by Juan Galiñanes, with a screenplay written by himself and Alberto Marini (La Unidad, El desconocido), is an original, fast-paced heist film that appeals to the most universal feelings.
The cast of FATUM is completed by Elena Anaya (Wonder Woman, La piel que habito), Arón Piper (Código Emperador, El desorden que dejas), Luisa Mayol (Alegría, Quien a hierro mata) and Pepa Gracia (La Unidad, Feria: La luz más oscura).
Sergio (Luis Tosar) has serious gambling problems. After swearing to his wife that he would never gamble again, he receives a tip about an alleged soccer match fixing and, unable to keep his promise, he returns to the betting house with the intention of recovering all the money he has lost. The tip turns out to be true and his luck is finally going to change… but Alejo (Aron Piper), with a past also marked by gambling, bursts into the place with a gun.
Pablo (Alex Garcia), a sniper for the GEO, is pressured by Commissioner Costa (Elena Anaya) to serve in the robbery. But the GEO’s head is elsewhere, in the hospital, where his son’s life hangs in the balance.
As fate would have it, Sergio and Pablo find themselves involved in a heist at a gambling house, where a gunshot will change their lives forever.
FATUM is an original and thrilling vision about the weight of destiny and our immediate future. A story on the edge that takes place in just 12 hours.
Juan Galiñanes, director of FATUM points out that “All the characters are driven by emotions such as love, revenge and guilt, so it is very easy to empathize with them. In FATUM there are no bad guys or good guys, only people who face the whims of destiny head on”.
For her part, Emma Lustres, producer of the film, emphasizes that FATUM is “a very dynamic film, with a relatively complex structure, which deals with classic ‘noir’ themes with a contemporary look. A film full of tension and adrenaline, but with a strong social background that overlaps all the action, and with a dramatic charge that appeals to the most universal feelings”.
The shooting took place in Galicia. The technical team includes Alejandro de Pablo (Antidisturbios, As Bestas) as Director of Photography, Alexandra Fernández (Infiesto, Neboa) as Art Director, Lu Rodríguez (El desorden que dejas, Néboa) in Editing, Carlos Mouriño (direct sound) and Diego Staub (editing) in Sound, Manuel Riveiro (El desconocido, 3 caminos) as Soundtrack composer, Mara Collazo (Adu, Fariña) in Makeup and Hairstyling, María Porto (Codigo Emperador, La Unidad) in Costume Design, Conchi Iglesias in Casting Direction and María Liaño (Código Emperador, La Unidad) in Production Direction.
FATUM is produced by Vaca Films in co-production with Playtime and with the participation of RTVE, Amazon, TVG and with the support of ICAA and Agadic.
FATUM will be distributed by Universal Pictures International Spain. International sales will be handled by Playtime.
