El embrujo de Shanghai

AKA: The Shanghai Spell

Country: Spain

In the Gràcia district of Barcelona, in the wake of the Spanish Civil War, a fourteen-year-old lad discovers his first love at the point of his pencil whilst drawing the portrait of a sickly but coquettish young girl. Meanwhile, an old freedom-fighter pits himself against bad types, a pretty cinema-ticket girl takes to the streets at night, and a young anarchist dedicates himself to telling tall stories about adventures in faraway Shanghai, as reality and fiction merge together.


  • Based on the 1993 novella of the same name by Spanish writer Juan Marsé (b. 1933)
