Res de nou (2007)
Author: Lluís-Anton Baulenas
Res de nou is a drama in the key of black humour on the tragedy of war. The main character is a merchant who, like Mother Courage, travels through all the war zones in the world, selling his wares. The plot focuses on the continuity of life in a trench-house on the front line, where some archetypal characters live and die as they wait for the war – a war in which we can recognise features of the Spanish Civil War, of World War II, of the wars of the Balkans and of Chechnya – to come to an end. The only survivors are the merchant and a goat.
