“House of my father”, a film with a very Mexican flavour

The UK premiere of this film will be held on the 8th of June, but special circumstances in London will have it shown from the 10th of May at the Moving Picture Company.


Directed by Matt Piedmont, the film was first released in the US on the 16th of March, and it tells the story of Armando Álvarez (Will Ferrel) who finds himself in a situation where to save his father’s ranch – where he has lived and worked his whole life – he must come face-to-face with one of the most powerful drug lords, threatening the woman he loves and his family.

The film began shooting in California in September 2010, and was produced by Emilio Diez Barroso and Darlene Caamano Loquet of “Nala Films” in partnership with Will Ferrel (who also played the lead role), Adam McKay, Kevin Messick and Jessica Elbaum from “Gary Sanchez productions”.

They were all told only a month before that the lead actor must learn Spanish. This was well-known actor Will Ferrel, a leader among comic actors in Hollywood and nominated for best comic performance at the MTV movie awards for his role in “Old School”.

This film has him acting alongside Gael Garcia Bernal, an actor who has been involved in six Oscar nominated films and plays the lead in “También la lluvia” (“Even the rain”), a film presented at the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival in London

They share the screen with Diego Luna, Génesis Rodríguez, Pedro Armendáriz, Nick Offerman, Efrén Ramírez and Adrian Martínez. Songstress Christinga Aguilera also participated in the film, performing the song “Casa de mi Padre”, composed by Andrew Feltenstein and John Nau, which is included on the film’s original soundtrack.

House of my father” will be shown at The Moving Picture Company in London (127 Wardour Street London, Greater London W1F 0NL) on the 10th of May at 6:30 PM. The film offers the public action, passion, drama, laughter, music and entertainment in the style that is a mix of  “over-acted soap opera drama” and films from the old Wild West.
