Reviews

  • An intimate and bittersweet portrait of three generations of women living together in a small apartment. A film about unconditional motherly love and the sacrifices mothers are willing to make for their children. With a remarkably personal and honest approach, the filmmaker offers insight into the relations between the women. By witnessing everyday moments of the family life, the story unfolds itself.
