The Cold Call
A puerta fría | Xavi Puebla, 2012
Spain | 80 minutes

TV salesman Salva knows he needs at least one big contract to bring him back into favor with his boss, so he heads to a trade fair where he hopes to make a pitch to Mr. Battleworth, a big American distributor. Weak on English, he enlists the aid of Ines, a hostess at the conference, but the meeting with Battleworth doesn’t turn out exactly as planned.  A business fable for our times, The Cold Call features excellent performances from Antonio Dechent, Maria Valverde and Nick Nolte as Mr. Battleworth.
