A slick, stylish melo­drama with an in­volv­ing story and a crack­ing cast

Malta Independent - - CINEMA -

Juli­eta lives in Madrid with her daugh­ter An­tía. They both suf­fer in si­lence over the loss of Xoan, An­tía’s fa­ther and Juli­eta’s hus­band. But at times grief doesn’t bring peo­ple closer, it drives them apart.

When An­tía turns eigh­teen she aban­dons her mother, with­out a word of ex­pla­na­tion. Juli­eta looks for her in ev­ery pos­si­ble way, but all she dis­cov­ers is how lit­tle she knows of her daugh­ter.

JULI­ETA talks about the mother’s strug­gle to sur­vive un­cer­tainty. It also talks about fate, about guilt com­plexes and about that un­fath­omable mys­tery that leads us aban­don the peo­ple we love, eras­ing them from our lives as if they had never meant any­thing, as if they had never ex­isted.
