Storyline

Divorced for more than ten years, Gloria, a vibrant 58-year-old office clerk in Santiago, Chile and mother of two grown-up kids, craves for adventure, while on the other hand, she refuses to spend the rest of her life in solitude and wail in self-pity. Instead, vivacious Gloria embraces her freedom, and because of her love for dance, she frequently hangs out at middle-aged singles' gatherings searching for love and intimacy, but most of all, achingly longing for connection and the long-lost companionship. But the funny thing about life is that it is utterly unpredictable, so when suddenly Gloria meets Rodolfo, a recently divorced former naval officer, she will decide to give love a second chance and daringly give it a shot. Regretfully, however, Rodolfo comes with baggage, as he is still attached to his former family and his two daughters, and even though Gloria is sincerely attracted to him, reality's harsh truth will inevitably bring her face-to-face with towering obstacles rather ...

An honest and intense portrait of a real woman, superbly interpreted
28 October 2013 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

It is rare to find female portraits of real women, with all their imperfections, vulnerabilities, as well as their strength and courage. I have seen many movies trying to represent the female universe, but "Gloria" is in my opinion one of the most accurate, honest, real I have ever seen. In his picture there's not a single cliché , or pathetic, or melodramatic moment and the merit is to be given to Paulina Garcià who proves superb, she does not represent , she is a real woman, as if she were not playing. She offers such a variety of expressions, gestures , evidence of a great talent, her moments of joy are as intense as her down ones, proving always so charismatic and real. In the end we stay disarmed in front of this woman, who lives her sometimes desperate search for life in front of us, and we cannot but sympathize, smile, cry and feel with her. But her merit is shared by the director, quite significantly a man, and a young man, surprisingly capable of offering a very sensitive and mature view of the female world, and an equally honest view of a rather miserable male universe.
