Spanish Film Festival
Carla Simón’s autobiographical jewel is one of the most evocative and affecting depictions of childhood seen in years, and marks the arrival of a major new voice in world cinema.
In the summer of 1993, following the death of her parents, six-year old Frida is forced from bustling Barcelona to the Catalan provinces to live with her aunt and uncle, her new legal guardians. Country life is a challenge: aside from the emotional upheaval, the nature that surrounds her is mysterious, if not dangerous. She also has a new little sister, of whom she must take care, and deal with new feelings such as jealousy. But it is the source of her parents’ passing that casts a shadow over how she is treated by the local community… Indeed, Frida’s life will never be the same.
