“Acclaimed at Málaga for its authenticity of detail – psychological, of place, and family power dynamics ”
“It is undoubtedly the best debut in Spanish cinema for years”
“Lullaby is strongest in the subtle and compassionate characterisation of its women”
“A super debut”
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.
Amaia has just become a mother, and the challenge is even more significant than she imagined. So when her partner has to leave for several weeks because of his job, she decides to spend time with her parents in a lovely coastal village in the Basque Country and hopefully share the responsibility of looking after her baby. However, she forgot that even when one becomes a parent, one never stops being a daughter.
