“The August Virgin” is a Spanish comedy-drama that is the dreamy, sensual summer story of one woman’s journey. Eva (played by the film’s co-writer, the luminescent Itsaso Arana) is about to turn 33. Her decision to stay in Madrid in the sweltering month of August, when most of the city’s inhabitants flee, is something of a leap of faith – she’s in search of herself and her own life. The neighborhoods around her are bursting with traditional Saint’s Days parties and celebrations, while she encounters a series of old friends and lovers, and meets some new ones. Her month is filled with revelations, regrets and discoveries. The wonderful music is from well-known Spanish singer Soleá Morente who also makes an appearance in the film.
