    • Synopsis
    • Two men, one woman, a love story and a desire deeper tan all conventions, more wild than the land that surrounds them. Leonardo, The Groom and The Bride form an inseparable triangle since they were children, but Leonardo and The Bride have an special and almost invisible link, which cannot be broken… Years go by and The Bride, unhappy, prepares for her wedding day with The Groom in the middle of the white desert, where she lives with her father. The day before the wedding, a beggar knocks on her door offering a present and some advice: 'Don’t marry him if you don’t love him', and gives her two knives made of glass.

      'The Bride' is, above all, a great love story, one of the most beautiful tragedies of the Spanish imaginary, where the hypnotic landscape surrounds these fascinating characters. A Mediterranean version of Romeo & Juliet, 'The Bride' is a fierce reflection about love and death.
