A mi madre le gustan las mujeres (My Mother Likes Women)

Feature Film Spain 2002

All about our mother. A famous pianist, long divorced from her husband, announces to her three daughters that she intends to move in with her latest lover, a female musician from Bohemia. They first react with the tolerant attitude of modern women but later they unite in their efforts to break up a relationship that they cannot accept. These three sisters are not at all like Chekhov's characters; they are more like female versions of Woody Allen, the middle one especially. She is the most neurotic and is played superbly by Anglo-Spanish actress Leonor Watling (the dancer in a coma of Talk to Her), who steals the movie. The style of the early Almodóvar is apparent not only in the sparkling and unconventional tones of the comedy, but also in the cast, because almost all the actors have been directed by the Maestro. This is an all-women film: from the directors/screenwriters (who always work together) Inés Paris and Daniela Féjerman, here in their debut film as directors, to Andy Chango, a lesbian singer from Argentina. Her original rock song, My Mother Likes Women, is the musical theme of the film. The inversion of roles (radical parent, puritanical daughters) is probably the principal merit of a film which, to a certain extent, anticipates the Zapatero era.
