Athletic and Barcelona meet in La 1 in the Copa del Rey quarter-final duel. On Antena 3 comes the second date with the series Serial Lover. La Sexta broadcasts a new episode of the Generation TOP competition. In the field of cinema, two masterpieces, the adaptation of the memorable comic Persepolis and the space adventure of Alfonso Cuarón in Gravity.
2:25 p.m., Be crazy
USA, 2013 (90 minutes). Director: Alfonso Cuaron. Actors: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney.
The astonishing directing work of Mexican Alfonso Cuarón (and Gravity's extensive technical team) uses technical and digital advances to create an unusual film. Beyond its possible space story category, Gravity initially masquerades as a realistic drama and later almost as an adventure film. Furthermore, his overwhelming expertise and the harrowing development of his protagonist's cosmic adventures do not hide a juicy reflection on loneliness and the proximity of death. Cuarón's achievement lies in playing with the spectacularity of his astral setting in order to later heighten the fear that imprisons his protagonists in the confines of a space capsule. The visual and dramatic impressions that the film conveys, which are rarely seen on a screen, leave the viewer both excited and exhausted.
Athletic-Barcelona in the King's Cup
9:30 p.m., 1
The San Mamés Stadium will host the quarter-final match of the Copa del Rey between Athletic and Barcelona. A duel between the two clubs with the most cup wins on their record, to which the Bilbao team comes in good shape, in third place in the league tournament and with the same points as their rival. The Blaugrana come after the Unionistas de Salamanca were eliminated in the round of 16.
10 p.m., Movistar drama
France, 2007 (95 minutes). Directors: Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud.
Marjane Satrapi's memorable comic becomes a magical and moving film that paints a harsh autobiographical portrait of a young Iranian girl coming of age in the Ayatollah's Iran. Persepolis is of course a cry for freedom, but also a hymn to the dignity of women and a profound family melodrama full of political commitment. His images, always fair, always clean, move between abstraction and simplicity and result in the most haunting realism.
Another appointment with “TOP Generation”
10:30 p.m., sixth
