Directed by Alauda Ruiz de Azúa

❤️ WHY WE LOVE IT ❤️

From the producers of Oscar nominated THE MOLE AGENT and THE IMPOSSIBLE comes the striking debut of Variety’s 10 Directors to track Alauda Ruiz de Azua. Surrounded by a superb cast with Laia Costa (who returns to Berlinale after VICTORIA) and Almodovar’s regular Susi Sanchez, this emotional story about motherhood and generational gaps being narrowed day by day will strike a chord with audiences due to its empathetic portrait of life.

 

SYNOPSIS

Amaia has just become a mother and realizes that she doesn’t really know how to be one. When her partner goes away for several weeks because of his job, she decides to go to her parents’ house, in a lovely coastal village in the Basque Country, and so share the responsibility of looking after her baby. What Amaia doesn’t know is that, even though she is a mother now, she is still a daughter.

 


PRESS

“Acclaimed at Málaga for its authenticity of detail – psychological, of place, and family power dynamics ”  
Variety

“A super debut”
Télegram

“It is undoubtedly the best debut in Spanish cinema for years”
Pedro Almodóvar

“Lullaby is strongest in the subtle and compassionate characterisation of its women”
Screendaily
