There is a kind of poetry to the way the two parents and their teenage daughter fold laundry together, just as there is palpable tension in their glances and gestures. Even the most mundane activities, such as house cleaning, seem loaded with meaning. A film about marriage and parenting, Mañana a esta hora is also a meditation on acceptance. In her documentary-like approach, like Mekas, Rodriguez elevates the unremarkable, so that, in the end, her film becomes a delicate memento mori.
