Amsterdam Spanish Film Festival: Girasoles Silvestres
Festival favourite master director Jaime Rosales (Petra) portrays in his new film the harrowing struggles of a young mother trying to flourish despite the men in her life. Brutally honest and transcended by two dazzling performances by Anna Castillo (The Olive Tree) and Oriol Pla (Petra), this powerful film is called to become a modern classic of Spanish cinema.
Julia, aged 22 and mother of two children, falls in love with Oscar. They start an intense and tortuous relationship full of ups and downs. Soon, Julia begins to doubt Oscar’s suitability as a male role model for her children. A violent incident will lead Julia to leave Oscar and look for a better future.
