"El último tren" de Diego Arsuaga es una coproducción hispano-argentina con un guión en el que colabora Fernando León de Aranoa y las actuaciones de Federico Luppi y Héctor Alterio.
En el argumento, un poderoso estudio de Hollywood compra para su próxima película una histórica locomotora uruguaya del silo XIX. Aunque la noticia es motivo de orgullo para moitos uruguayos, no tiene la misma acogida entre los veteranos miembros de la asociación Amigos del Riel. Decididos a boicotear el traslado de la locomotora a Estados Unidos, tres de ellos y un niño emprenderán una aventura loca que comienza cuando secuestran la máquina y, con la consigna: "El patrimonio no se vende", se lanzan a recorrer las abandonadas vías del interior del país, arrastrando detrás una cadena de acontecimientos que van desde la persecución de las autoridades hasta la solidaridad de los pueblos que, abandonados por la falta de un medio de transporte que dejó de funcionar hace tempo, ven en ellos una luz de esperanza.
El resultado es un maravilloso western subversivo, dialogado sin ecos ni oquedades literarias y mantenido en pie por una armazón abierta por igual a la epopeya y a la comedia, a la buena lágrima y a la sonrisa, a la severidad del compromiso político y a la ligereza.

An event declared a Festival of Galician Tourist Interest that receives an important number of visitors from all over Galicia every year. This festival was one of the first “filloa” (crepe) festivals held in Galicia, being centred on an exclusively Galician product, just like other traditional products accompanying it (honey, chorizo…), although there are similar desserts in other regions and countries. In view of its age, we can determine that it originated as a genuine promotion of this characteristic Entroido (Galician Carnival) product.
