2016, four years after the global pandemic. Nely Reguera debuted with a very interesting film, ‘María (y los otros)’, starring Bárbara Lennie, Vito Sanz and María Vázquez.

An act of bravery to make a fascinating game of cinematic reflectionin addition to an accomplice joke for fans of his acting work.
