Winner of 7 Spanish GOYA Awards, this absorbing and powerful film portrays the realities of family life behind closed doors. It was written and directed by Iciar Bollain.
An uncompromising, provocative and emotionally raw drama about domestic violence in which a young mother tries to make a new life for herself after years of brutality at the hands of her husband. Fashioned from a tense, realistic script and featuring performances of intensity and depth, the film’s non-sensationalist tone was much admired by Ken Loach.
"A powerful drama... superb writing... excellent performances"
"One of the most moving films you'll see this year"
