Don't Tell Me the Boy Was Mad

Don't Tell Me the Boy Was Mad (French title: Une histoire de fou) is a 2015 French drama film co-written, produced and directed by Robert Guédiguian. The film is based on the true story of a Spanish journalist, José Antonio Gurriarán, who was left in a semi-paralyzed state after a bomb attack by the Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia in Madrid in 1981. He then recounted his experiences in an autobiographical novel La Bomba, which serves as the source material for the film.[2] The film was screened in the Special Screenings section at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.[3]
