Storyline

Claire, a suburban mother indulging in some good-natured hedonistic debauchery, receives word from her child that he is abandoning her as his mother. To win back his affection, she decides to carry a small rock half way around the world to its place of origin on a Mediterranean island. Along the way, she goes to work in a strange strip club on the edge of civilization where exotic dancers perform in an otherworldly space for abandoned souls just like her.

Not much ado but watchable
13 September 2017 | by rhondasmitSee all my reviews

Saw this on Netflix the other night, and it was slightly better than the repeat fare on TV. There isn't much more to the story than the synopsis of the movie provides, and ordinarily bored soccer mom's aren't my thing, but I did not hate the protagonist, or the movie.

Let me be clear, I didn't like either of them a great deal, but - oddly - no hate. This wasn't a movie that is very memorable, but it was watchable. Some of the scenery was beautifully photographed. Visually very appealing, well framed, great colors.

Nudity doesn't bother me, if it does, just skip the first minute or so, after that it is all small boobs, nothing too racy. The protagonist is flawed, impulsive, a horrible mother, messes up, and does not seem capable of redemption, but at least she does it in a scenic fashion. Problems I had with the film were about the incessant drinking and driving and smoking - not a fan of those. Also, even though the film was short, my attention span wandered a bit toward the end, and I got caught up in comparing Spanish as spoken here vs. in the Mexican/South American movies I watch (never learned Spanish, so it is all based on movies), and didn't catch all the 'deep' things the old woman was rambling about. Maybe that would have made a difference, although I doubt it.
