Spain, 2009, 86 min.
Director: Mar Coll
Lea has to go to Girona unexpectedly as her grandfather suddenly dies. There she reunites with her family whom she hasn’t seen since she left the country. The three days of the wake, mass and funeral are full of nostalgia and grief. The death of the family patriarch is the perfect catalyst for his descendents to get along. It is also a good time to put an end to the show of appearances put on by this bourgeoisie in its decline. Lea resists the hypocrisy although it clings to her skin like a tailor-made suit. Winner of the Goya Award for Best New Director.
