Movie Info

Director Silvia Munt teams with screenwriter Eva Baeza for this drama that interweaves two parallel tales - one concerning a theater director making preparations for the premiere of her latest play, and the other concerning her husband's experiences as an employee in a nearby geriatric hospital. Viena (Munt) and her husband Daniel (Ramon Madaula) have just had a major row over Daniel's refusal to attend the opening of Viena's latest stage play, entitled "Pretexts." As a result of the argument, Viena is driven deeper into the arms of neurotic lead actor Ricardo (Francesc Garrido), who stars opposite the equally hysterical Marta (Merce Llorens). Meanwhile, at the hospital where Daniel works, meek night nurse Eva (Laia Marull) tends lovingly to her elderly patients, lending an especially gentle touch to the frail Claudio (Manuel Alexandre). Though it's plain to see that Eva's patients adore her, the quiet nurse still suffers from a crippling case of low self-esteem. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
