Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member this spanish film is a frenetic black comedy about a man who wins a huge tv show prize. it's packed with the kind of european quirkiness you'd see in something like 'Amelie', but it's a very different story which serves more as cutting economic satire. anyone with a background in finance will have an even greater appreciation for this film. i only came across Concursante after enjoying director Rodrigo Cortà (C)s' more recent film 'Buried' and wanting to see what other films he'd made.
