"REQUIREMENTS TO BE A NORMAL PERSON" ("REQUISITOS PARA SER UNA PERSONA NORMAL"). Miami Premiere!

A brilliant feel good comedy by Leticia Dolera!.

Directed  & written by Leticia Dolera
Cast: Leticia Dolera, Jordi Llodra, Manuel Burque & Miki Esparbé.
Spain (2015), 90 min.

Everybody tries to fit in, but few people go about it as methodically as Maria de la Montana (writer-director Leticia Dolera), who hopes to reach normality through a 7-item checklist. Her mentally challenged younger brother (Jordi Llorda) and overweight friend (Manuel Burque) seem to have most of the bases covered, and the success of Maria's quest may boil down to just being herself. Brightly colored and boasting a jangly folk score by Luthea Salmon, this romantic comedy is, as one might home from its title, charmingly eccentric. Winner of Best New Screenwriter, Cinematography and Editing Awards at the Málaga Spanish Film Festival.
