Living in a poor apartment with very little money, Rosa spends the days with Antonia and Carlos, a transgender prostitute who lives in the same corridor that them. The lives of them three change the day that Masha, a Russian prostitute of the same corridor, dies by overdose. Lyuba, Masha's little daughter, decides hide inside Rosa's house after to learn the obsession of Antonia to keep open the door from her apartment when Rosa goes to work (due to her fear to fall on the ground or suffer a heart attack and no one can help her). When Rosa discovers Lyuba, she insists to call the police to give them Lyuba, but Antonia rejects the idea. Carlos and Antonia convince Rosa to care Lyuba for a few days meanwhile they looking for Yuri, Lyuba's older brother, hoping that he takes the child and move any problem faraway from them.

beautiful portraits
11 November 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A film of its actresses more of its plot. Because the performances are the central pillar of this pure Spanish film. Prostitutes story, it gives a splendid portrait of sadness, loneliness and the second chance. A great film with a magnificent cast. Nothing original, at the first sigh, but all impressive for the touching nuances and precise portraits. So, a profound beautiful film.
