Set in a frenzied, war torn region of the Balkans in the mid-1990s, this tender, humorous drama starring Benicio del Toro, Tim Robbins, Olga Kurylenko, Melanie Thierry and Fedja Stukan, follows a group of aid workers who must remove a cadaver from a well. Circumstances soon turn this seemingly simple task into a near impossible mission.


Fernando León de Aranoa is a screenwriter and film director. After a long career as a screenwriter, he directed his first feature film, Familia (1996), which won the Spanish Film Academy Goya for Best New Director. Later came Barrio (1998), Mondays In The Sun (2002), Princesas (2005) and Amador (2010). Collectively, these films won twelve Goya awards, five of which were for Best Director and Screenwriter. As a documentary filmmaker, he has made Izbieglize (Refugiados, 1995), Caminantes (2001), Buenas Noches, Ouma (segment of the collection of short films Invisibles, Goya for Best Documentary, 2007) and he wrote the screenplay for La Espalda Del Mundo (1999).

He’s also an artist and illustrator, and has written short stories and brief narrations. As a teacher, he collaborates frequently with the Sundance Institute and with the San Antonio de los Baños International Film School in workshops for screenwriters and directors. In 2004 he founded his own production company, Reposado.

A Perfect Day (2015) is his sixth fictional film.
