  1. Mr. Brosnan, I tell this news: just died at his home in Madrid, Luis García Berlanga. He was one of the Spanish film directors most militant at the time of Franco. His films are the most important: Welcome Mr. marshall, The executioner(El verdugo), Plácido, The National Shotgun (La escopeta Nacional), etc. He worked whith Bardem (Javier's uncle). Regards. Rosa
