A Perfect Day is a 2015 Spanish comedy-drama film written and directed by Fernando León de Aranoa. It is based on the novel "Dejarse Llover" by Paula Farias. It was screened in the Directors' Fortnight section at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and is the director’s English-language debut.
Veteran aid workers Mambrú (Benicio del Toro), B (Tim Robbins) and newcomer Sophie (Mélanie Thierry), accompanied by their interpreter Damir (Fedja Štukan), try to retrieve a corpse from a well somewhere in former Yugoslavia at the end of the Yugoslav Wars.
Their first attempt fails because their rope tears, so they set out to find another rope, which turns out to be more difficult than expected. They are joined in their endeavor by Mambrú's former lover Katya (Olga Kurylenko) and a young local boy named Nikola.
