Parallel Mothers (15)
Two women, Janis and Ana, coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn’t regret it and she is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatized. Janis tries to encourage her whilst they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between the two, which by chance develops and complicates, and changes their lives in a decisive way. “Almodóvar’s new movie has the warmth and the grandiloquent flair of a picture from Hollywood’s golden age” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
