Movie Info

Stones is a film about shoes which functions on the old Native American proverb, "Never judge a man until you've walked a mile in his moccasins." The shoes, in this case, belong to an ensemble of wacky characters whose lives are anchored to a brothel on the outskirts of Madrid. Adela is a long-suffering madam who must balance whoring with motherhood; Anita is her disabled, dog-obsessed daughter; Joaquin is one of Adela's most loyal clients, a tango-dancing businessman; Maricarmen is a taxi driver who can't get over her husband's death; Isabel is an eccentric rich woman fascinated by a foot-reading fortune teller; and Leire is a washed-up shoe designer. Together, this motley crew struggles to scrape through life and stay happy, learning to look beyond the quality of the shoes that they wear and to appreciate their quirky personality traits. This first feature film by Spanish director Ramón Salazar shows many influences from the films of Pedro Almodóvar, which often feature an ensemble cast in a slice-of-life situation where the rules of the normal world need not apply.

Audience Reviews for Piedras

Personally I believe French Cinema is the best among all Non-English Cinemas, due to the former's long history & unique trademark (geographic locations, language spoken, atmosphere, country's pride & coolness etc). And, I still believe. Like [Piedras] will be totally different if produced in France. Nevertheless, it is still intriguing enough. 5 women who are co-related in certain senses & the flick is about them & their surroundings. The flick is much easier & down to earth if compared to Pedro Almodovar's movies (in case, a comparison is really necessary). Smooth & fluent with so much hearts & hopes. Only they should have said something more about the shoes & the meaning behind 'em.
