La Soledad

(Spain, 2007, 123 minutes)

The daily lives of a young single mother who just moved to Madrid from her native village and a widowed mother of three grown-up daughters. Surprisingly affecting melodrama of modern loneliness, whose highly stylized handling and lack of narrative actually bring out naturalistic performances and a strongly unexpected emotional charge.
