On Tuesday 17 April at 20:00, the headquarters of the Cristino de Vera Foundation screens the film "Sugarbaby” (1985). It is the third instalment of the retrospective devoted to German director Percy Adlon. The film will be presented in its original version with subtitles. Admission is free until capacity is reached.

The film tells the story of Marianne, a 38-year-old overweight woman working at a funeral parlour as a make-up artist for corpses. Her life drags dully on as she contemplates her endless solitude. One day, travelling on the metro, she is struck by the voice of the conductor and she does the impossible by meeting the "man of her dreams". Carried away by curiosity, she takes the day off to investigate the work and personal schedule of her "Sugarbaby".
