Madre

Director: Rodrigo Sorogoyen Run Time: 129 min. Rating: Not Rated Language: Spanish/French

Ten years have gone by since Elena’s six-year-old son has disappeared. The last thing she heard of him was a phone call he gave her, saying that he was lost on a beach in France and couldn’t find his father. Nowadays, Elena lives on this same beach and manages a restaurant. She is finally beginning to emerge from this tragic episode when she meets a French teenager who strongly reminds her of her lost son. The two of them will embark on a relationship which will sow chaos and distrust around them.

“Rodrigo Sorogoyen expands his Oscar-nominated white-knuckler of a short in a most unexpected way: slower, calmer and imbued with metaphysical mystery.” ~ Guy Lodge, Variety

“It is undeniable that Sorogoyen is a master filmmaker. His work with his actors is impressive, with Nieto, in a fully bilingual performance, and Porier are both natural yet nuanced.” ~ Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter
