(AKA No Filter) Not to be confused with Sin Filtro
9 May 2018 | by andrewbunneySee all my reviews

DIRECTOR: Santiago Segura CAST: Maribel Verdú An attractive, intelligent high-achieving 39 year old woman has allowed herself to be beaten down by the whole catastrophe of modern life. With a boss who humiliates her, a husband who ignores her, a stepson who doesn't respect her, and a best friend who doesn't listen to her, Paz finally has had enough. When she refuses more calming medication and takes a herb to lessen her anxiety about traffic, tradies, social media and the rest, she finds her assertiveness quickly and dramatically changes her life. Without the usual filters of long-suffering, self effacement and diplomacy, Paz emerges from the repressive rat-race and moves toward regaining her independence and a better life.

No Filter is a great comic story for our time with the strong ring of dramatic authenticity. Played by Spain's #1 female star, Maribel Verdú (Blancanieves, Y Tu Mama Tambien etc) the character of Paz is an empowered, liberated and inspiring heroine. This neat film is entertaining for all and life affirming, especially for the girls.
