WINNER · BEST ACTRESS · VENICE

Spanish master Pedro Almodóvar’s (Pain and Glory, SWIFF’20) latest creation is a political mediation on the unrelenting fortitude of women.

Two women, Janis (Penélope Cruz) and Ana (Milena Smit), coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn’t regret it and she is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatized. Janis tries to encourage her while they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between the two, which by chance develops and complicates, and changes their lives in a decisive way.

“Brutal, beautiful ... a skein of reversals, revelations, surprises and coincidences unravelled with style, wit and feeling” — The New York Times

In Spanish with English subtitles.
