ONE CAREFUL OWNER (Closing Film)
2020, 1h 34m, Spain
Director: Bernabe Rico
Cast: Juana Acosta, Kiti Manver, Carlos Areces
When Sara is offered the chance to buy the house of her dreams, she can’t believe her luck. The house is light and airy, with spectacular views and extremely cheap. There’s just one “small” snag: Lola, the 80-year old current owner, will remain living in it until she dies. In theory, Sara shouldn’t have to wait long to have the house all to herself. Lola has already had two heart-bypasses, smokes like a chimney and drinks like a fish. So Sara decides to take the risk and wait it out. But, as with so many things in life, things don’t turn out exactly as expected. The months go by and Lola seems more vivacious than ever. And to make matters worse, Sara’s own life starts to crumble around her after an unexpected event. The two women, so very different, yet united in their loneliness, will form an unlikely friendship. One that is filled with tenderness, emotion and a lot of laughs.
