In this hilarious black comedy, Maritxu, a harried and highly-strung Basque woman, is becoming exhausted by the demands of her elderly mother Mari. Maritxu won’t hear of putting her in a nursing home, so her husband takes her on a vacation and conspires to have Mari taken to the home by his daughter Miren and son-in-law Kintxo. The plan backfires when Mari runs away. Kintxo tracks her down at a luxury hotel and has to take her into his home. The old lady is a terror, manipulative and vindictive, so he starts to consider a drastic solution. In his first solo outing as a director, Telmo Esnal works from a cracking script he cowrote with Asier Altuna (who codirected their previous film together, Aupa Etxebeste!). With a superb ensemble cast, led by Joxean Bengoetxea as the bumbling, put-upon Kintxo, Esnal creates a world populated with beautifully rendered, realistic characters increasingly driven to despair by the conniving grandma, played with quiet—and not so quiet—ferocity by Montserrat Carulla.
