As Magdalena's 15th birthday approaches, her simple, blissful life is complicated by the discovery that she's pregnant. Kicked out of her house, she finds a new family with her great-granduncle and gay cousin.
Beautifully filmed, show-don't-tell flick about a man dying of pancreatic cancer and a down-to-earth young woman who takes him into her farmhouse after he wrecks the, well, borrowed Jaguar he wanted to get away in. The situations they get into are by turns absurd, funny and moving, and the end had me sobbing into my handkerchief. Never mind that the way of all flesh is a little predictable. I have rarely seen such difficult subjects treated with such a sure instinct for what really matters, and with such cheer and grace. Yup, I'm a doctor; I see the real-life alternatives, and most of them are nowhere nearly as good. Then again, isn't that what the movie biz is all about? Anyway, I look forward to more from the people who made this one!
