La demora (Plá, 2012) - #Berlinale 2012

A single overworked mother of three kids close to poverty and a slightly demented father does the unthinkable

This very simple told film was very delightful and it did what very few European films do that I have seen lately: there is still hope in humanity. The human condition is not only a sad but also a beautiful, powerful one. Seemingly effortlessly this story comes toward a much anticipated but nevertheless surprising ending. The actors were wonderful and totally believable.

I was extremely happy that I saw this film first at the Berlinale.

Everybody that I told the story in a few words were quite amazed: this must have been a dream to pitch.
