Competition: Win ‘El Alma de las Moscas’ on DVD *closed*

The feature debut of Spanish director Jonathan Cenzual Burley, El Alma de las Moscas (The Soul of Flies, 2010) is released on DVD this Monday (22 October) courtesy of Matchbox Films. To celebrate this release, we’ve kindly been given THREE DVD copies of the film to give away to our loyal readers. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

By turns comic, poignant, absurd and profoundly moving, Cenzual Burley’s El Alma de las Moscas tells the story of the two sons of Evaristo de la Sierra – who never met their father and whose mutual existence they both ignored – until Evaristo sends them a letter inviting them to his funeral. The two brothers meet at a train station (where the train hasn’t gone by in years), which serves as the starting point of their surreal wanderings through barren landscapes, punctuated by chance encounters with the weird and wonderful characters that inhabit that land.
