Liz meets Rosa and baby Clarissa at the park. Rosa appears to be as lonely and helpless as she is, while all the other moms cheerfully celebrate the joys of motherhood. So it’s no surprise that Rosa and Clarissa soon become a growing presence in Liz’s life.

Es increible la habilidad que tienen algunos directores de hacer historias de cualquier cosa cotidiana , este es uno de esos casos , nada profundo nada elaborado pero con una historia bien formada
Historias que nos pueden pasar a cualquiera de nosotros
A story all about the strain that can be placed on mothers, shown through the toll that it takes on our main character while she befriends someone who is a bit more easygoing with the whole concept, this is an impressive drama from director Ana Katz, who also acts in a main role, and also co-wrote the screenplay with Inés Bortagaray.
Very well observed. I wouldn't call it witty, or a comedy, or a thriller though. It's a good portrayal of women and babies, rather unlikely friendships in times of loneliness and exhaustion, unease and resolution. And the absent father - what's he doing in a volcano at a time like this? For heaven's sake. No wonder she's struggling. Worth watching.
It's very interesting how the suspense regarding the characters of the two sisters and the protagonist's mind is installed and creates in the viewer a ceaseless doubt that even in the seemingly appeasing ending does not calm. But, once again, the way fiction is filmed is totally meaningless and uninteresting, being just a work of script writing and actors, nearly one-dimensional.
The flaws in this movie (of which the biggest is the cinematically unsatisfying ending) are redeemed by the brilliant illumination of the worries and insecurities of motherhood, and the sympathetic exploration of the class and sexual politics of childcare. Very refreshing.
Eindrückliche Schilderung der Einsamkeit alleingelassener Mütter. Beeindruckend, bedrohlich und niederschmetternd zugleich die unaufösbare Bindung der Mutter zu ihrem Kind. Was bleibt dann noch vom Leben?
