Parallel Mothers (Madres paralelas)
Two women, Janis and Ana, coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn’t regret it and is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatised. Janis tries to encourage her while they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors, and the few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between them which by chance develops and becomes more complicated - changing their lives in a decisive way.
Directed by Pablo Almodóvar, and starring Penélope Cruz and Milena Smit.
