Storyline

One year after suffering a horrible traffic accident, Geni is ready to resume her life... or at least that's what her family wants to see. The truth is that despite trying to please everyone, Geni feels unable to live up to expectations: her life before the accident no longer interests her. Why resume it then? The confusion that this creates causes her behavior to become increasingly more erratic and leads to a single idea that begins to grow within her: escape. Written by Anonymous

Deep down they all want what is best for her
25 August 2018 | by sergicaballeroalsinaSee all my reviews

The accident has changed her life. But it is the way that others behave with her that has changed the most. The film explores the fragile balance between condescension and cruelty that the closest people to a sick or wounded person often go through. An environment that is not really ready for that change. But who is? Deep down they all want what is best for her. Wishes that are not made strongly enough. That do not come true due to lack of energy or vocation. The world demands Geni to make an effort, to recover the Geni that she was before the accident, to behave. But it is the world that does not strive or behave. The film is explained efficiently through a clear, Frenchlike cinematographic language. But the important thing about this movie is the enormous acting by Nora Navas. The simplicity and clarity of her role allows us to observe the universe from Geni's eyes. From the indeterminate position of a woman who, far from living up to her old standards (middle-aged white woman, professional-liberal middle class), embraces a new world. She has awakened as a carefree girl, with a naked gaze. Facing her, a display of egos that turn out to be more demanding with her than with themselves. Everyone disputes the role of victim. No one wants Geni to monopolize pain. She is not the center of anything. She's off camara. Should she face the bitter assumption of this new reality or should she redeem herself from it? Hostility ends up turning her into the heroine of a perfect ending.
