Jaime Rosales, The Extraordinary Ordinary


Oriol and Yolanda live in Paris with their two daughters. Oriol is an architect and Yolanda is a teacher. During a holiday at the Ebro River Delta they have an accident that changes their lives.

Our take

We conclude our close-up on Spanish auteur Jaime Rosales with this Directors’ Fortnight selection, whose exquisite black and white cinematography and impeccable use of sound are reminiscent of Bresson. Drawing on naturalism to navigate loss and hope, this is a minimalist film of transcendent beauty.
