Traditional male and female gender roles, still strongly entrenched in many countries, including Spain, are tossed out the window in Achero Mañas intelligent and affecting third feature. Centering on a happy Madrid family of three—father Leo is an ambitious lawyer while his wife Alicia is a working mom who nonetheless takes care of the vast majority of the parenting for four-year-old daughter Dafne—Mañas’s drama quickly turns things upside-down by having Alicia die of an epileptic seizure.

Leo is immediately set adrift by his newfound responsibilities as a single parent, a feeling that is made doubly distressing when Dafne, herself understandably confused and heartbroken by her mother’s absence, asks for an “artificial” mother to help her fall asleep at night. It is here that Mañas takes the road less traveled, but to write any more about the plotline he introduces would be unfair to both the viewer and filmmaker alike. Suffice it to say that Leo’s actions are both surprising and potentially dangerous, as they require Leo to subsume his own identity to the point where he nearly loses it…
