Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
Spanish filmmaker Juan Luis Iborra directs the backstage comedy drama Valentín. In a countryside resort, an all-male theater troupe gets together to perform highlights of Othello and other various works of Shakespeare. Director Ricardo (Lluís Homar) suddenly finds himself attracted to the troupe's newest member, Valentín (Iñaki Font), while assistant director Lola (Elisa Matilla) pines for Ricardo. When Valentín starts getting all the good female roles, troupe veteran Jaime (Armando del Rio) gets bitterly jealous, leading the troupe to a tragic conclusion. Valentin was shown at the 2003 New York Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.
