“Astute, unpretentious and thrillingly humane.”~New York Times

Aroview: Another superb Chilean drama in the wake of the previous year's NO, Paulina Garcia plays a free-spirited 58-year-old divorcee who pursues love in the clubs of Santiago as she fights to stave off old age and loneliness.

A relationship soon blossoms with a sixty-something gentleman whose mutual affection and attraction is challenged by the demands of historical and family ties. Small on plot but rich in character and resonant in theme, this is an indeed glorious portrait of a woman in late-life bloom whose grasp for happiness is exceeded by her reach.
