Storyline

Leo is immediately set adrift by his new found responsibilities as a single parent, a feeling that is made doubly distressing when Dafne, herself understandably confused and heartbroken by her mother's absence, asks for an "artificial" mother to help her fall asleep at night. It is here that Mañas takes the road less traveled, but to write any more about the plot line he introduces would be unfair to both the viewer and filmmaker alike. Suffice it to say that Leo's actions are both surprising and potentially dangerous, as they require Leo to subsume his own identity to the point where he nearly loses it Written by Palm Springs Internation Film Festival

Quotes

Leo: I don't know if I can. I don't know how I'm going to do it.
Padre Leo: By doing it. You won't have time to think. Do you know why? Because, fortunately, children are more important than oneself. You'll stop thinking about yourself, because their happiness will matter to you more thatn your suffering, Leo.

very interesting film
14 April 2013 | by tahootiSee all my reviews

after the unexpected death of his wife, and attorney (leo) struggles to accept his new role in life as a single father, attorney, father, and substitute mother for his four year old daughter, dafne. realizing that his daughter, who witnessed the death of her mother, is struggling just as hard as he is, he makes a decision to do what he needs to give his daughter time to accept what has changed both of their lives. the film shows various levels of how society and the legal system views alternate lifestyles: from the legal system and the way absent fathers are treated to the violence and hatred demonstrated by homophobic individuals. it also draws the portrait of how far a parent will go for the love of a child as well as how children need to work out their own emotions in their own time. a very touching film that, prior to watching, was not sure that it would be an effective story. but, i was very surprised at the subtle way the characters were able to evoke emotion from the viewer without falling into stereotypical story lines. my only suggestion is that it would be best to be watched on dvr or disc as the subtitling is very smooth in its keeping up with the dialogue but can sometimes be a little fast.
