Enjoyable film with melancholy , thoughtful events and being deliberately paced
Ane's (Nagore Aramburu) existence turns apart when , week after week , she receives a bunch of flowers at home . Always at the same time and always without a senders note . Then , there takes place a car crash and the happenings get awry . Later on , the confrontation between the three women : lover , wife and mother-in-law called Tere (Itziar Aizpuru) , rages because blame each other over the accident , though not formulated .
This interesting film is full of drama , touching scenes and good feeling . It is a simple , dramatic and intelligent portrait of a few people , being spoken in original Basque language . The picture is developed in slow-moving but is pretty well realized . The flick stands out for its melancholy and poignant multilevel exploration of romance and remembrance . The story has a certain melancholic style , a climate of transience and sadness that spread the dispute between the three women he knew . The intrigue is whether these intertwined lives finally will eventually find and recognize . It packs a nice cast though unknown who gives good performance . Sensitive musical score by Parcal Gaigne , an expert composer who has composed and conducted a lot of scores such as ¨Mensaka¨ , ¨Silencio Roto¨ , ¨Piedras¨, ¨Azuloscurocasinegro¨ , ¨Gordos¨ and many others . Colorful as well as evocative cinematography by Javier Agirre , being shot on location in San Sebastian , Guipuzcoa and surroundings .
