After Lila (Najwa Nimri) is found unconscious in the water, she has amnesia, so her friend Blanca (Carme Elias) helps her recover. Lila's house is right on the waterfront, and is quite grand, so Blanca tells her she'll need to start singing at concerts again to support her lifestyle. Acc to the trivia section, the story of a singer retiring after the death of a family member is based on a real japanese singer, although i would guess it's a frequent occurence. Co-stars Eva Llorach as Violeta, Natalia de Molina as Marta. The script is so sparse.... it's almost artistic. Lots of still and slowly panning images. As the story goes on, we find out more and more details of what led Lila to be on the beach. And everyone's relationship with their own mother. Some things are left unanswered, so it may not be for everyone. And some scenes just go on way too long. (Marta) it really didn't need to be over two hours long. I'll need to watch this again to try to figure out just what happened. Nimri had been in the successul Open your Eyes, the original spanish version of vanilla sky here in the u.s. Cantara is subtitled on netflix. Written and directed by carlos vermut. Many awards at the film festivals. He seems to like to write and direct his own projects.
