Edition 2000
97' - 1999 - Drama - Dialogue: Spanish
Director: Gracia Querejeta Composer: Angel Illarramendi With: Mercedes Sampietro, Julieta Serrano, Marta Belaustegui
Gracia Querejeta directed this complex psychological study about two generations of a single family. The film unfolds with a double narrative. The first details the turbulent marriage of the brittle Adela and her macho, Cuban-born husband Joao. Their lives are chronicled from their wedding in the 1950s through the birth and upbringing of their three daughters, to Joao's mysterious disappearance in the '60s. In the second narrative, the three daughters, Gloria, Ana, and Lidia - now all in their 40s - gather for the funeral of their mother. Her ashes are to be divided in three, and delivered to three different people: their mother’s best friend, Rafaela; Gloria’s childhood companion, Santos, and finally the three girls’ fugitive father, Joao…
