film synopsis

Two passionate, intelligent women — a filmmaker and her lead actress — fall in love. What happens to their fiery, one-of-a-kind passion when infatuation turns to comfort and euphoria settles into routine? Is time the enemy of love? Ruth Caudeli’s smart and sensual Eva + Candela charts the intricacies of a relationship with unsparing honesty. It’s one of the rare movies that takes a realistic look at the metamorphosis of love, from can’t-keep-our-hands-off-each-other ardor to the jealousies and misunderstandings any couple must face. The Spanish Caudeli and her two remarkable and stunning Colombian stars, Alejandra Lara and Silvia Varón, dig deep, exploring the way Eva and Candela’s dedication to their careers both fuels and undermines their relationship. Jumping forward and backward in time, the movie examines this turbulent relationship with clear, compassionate eyes. Its heartache is universal.

In competition for the CV Cine Award.
