“A delightful comedy!” –Variety
This delightful screwball comedy stars the lovely Rosa Maria Sardà (All About My Mother) as Sophia, a concert pianist who has fallen in love with her much younger female colleague, Eliska (Eliska Sorová) and now must brave the reactions of her supposedly open-minded daughters (smartly performed by a trio of Spain’s finest actresses: Maria Pujalte, Silvia Abascal and Leonor Watling).
Sofia, a renowned pianist, is long separated from the daughters’ father. It is on the occasion of her birthday that she delivers her stunning announcement: she has fallen in love again. Clearly smitten, she begins to describe her new lover: somewhat younger…also a pianist. The daughters, thrilled and eager to hear more, are interrupted by the doorbell. To their surprise, it’s Mom’s new girlfriend.
The daring feature debut of Spanish directors Ines Paris and Daniela Fejerman, MY MOTHER LIKES WOMEN traces the emotional landscape of a ‘modern’ family that nevertheless registers seismic shock at this unexpected news. Sofia’s daughters are the children of left-wing intellectuals. Yet, even their progressive background hasn’t prepared them for the emotions they experience when their mother brings her new lover into their lives.
