Storyline

When three estranged sisters, Gloria, Ana and Lidia, meet up again on the death of their mother, Adela, they find themselves obeying her somewhat eccentric last wishes. Though their mother has spent the last 30 years without uttering a single word, she has left very clear written instructions of what she wants done after her death. Her ashes are to be divided in three, and delivered to three different people: their mother's best friend, Rafaela; Gloria's childhood companion, Santos, and finally the three girls' fugitive father, Joao. To do so, the three women must leave the urban cocoon of Madrid and head for their childhood home in the remote hinterland of Galicia. Gloria, single and 47, whose only interest is dancing boleros, Ana, a sophisticated, high-class prostitute, and Lidia, pregnant for the first time at 34 by a married man, make difficult travelling companions, accompanied as they are by three urns containing Adela's remains. As they move nearer their own past, the journey ... Written by GMeleJr

Rich and Strange
3 October 2004 | by (Jackson Heights, NY) – See all my reviews

This rich, strange, exceedingly beautiful movie from Spain is full of the past and present, as three sisters reunite and the viewer discovers--slowly--what happened to their family years before. Wonderful performances, good direction from a relative novice and gorgeous location shooting in Galicia that will take your breath away combine to make BY MY SIDE AGAIN a must for foreign film aficionados (unless you're Spanish, in which case it isn't foreign and you've probably already seen it). The film was written by Manuel Gutierrez Aragon, the supremely talented writer/director who has already given us one of the great films of our new century--"Visionarios."
