A Gun in Each Hand is a witty and brutally hilarious portrait of forty-something men and changing gender roles in contemporary Spanish society.

  • Chance encounters between old friends, acquaintances, ex-spouses and potential lovers form an engrossing series of six exquisitely-realised vignettes. Whether it’s one man’s sorry efforts to win back his ex-wife or another’s misguided attempts to woo a co-worker, each meeting starts off with men most humbly attempting to get what they want, and often winding up completely bewildered as the women of each story mercilessly flip the situations around.

    Featuring one of the most star-studded casts assembled in modern Latin American cinema, the film features the phenomenal Ricardo Darín, Luis Tosar, Javier Cámara, Eduardo Noriega, Leonor Watling, Candela Peña and Leonardo Sbaraglia.

    This superbly accomplished battle-of-the-sexes comedy achieved breakout box-office success and is must-see.

    "Pretty much IRRESISTIBLE…. the collective of fresh, funny performances bring the tight dialogue to firecracker life." – Indiewire
