Jamón Jamón 15

Part of Celebrating Penélope Cruz. Spain, 1993, Bigas Luna, 93m.

Provocative and amusing, Jamón Jamón's overheated melodrama is often its own reward. This is a perfect ride to take you through the Summer and also the first time Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem appeared together on screen.

Jose Luis has a cushy corporate job at the lingerie factory owned by his mother Conchita. Upon making the acquaintance of Silvia (Penélope Cruz), a beautiful laborer on the underwear assembly line, he is instantly lovestruck. When he announces his intention to marry this blue-collar woman, Conchita is quite displeased, so she enlists the hunky Raul (Javier Bardem) to take Silvia's mind off her son. The plan works, until Conchita also falls for Raul.
