María has been a homemaker for her brothers and father for the past twenty years; responsible and controlling, she is proud to be the pillar of the family. But at the age of 35 she suddenly finds herself surplus to requirements, and seemingly condemned to orbit around the lives of others. Her increasingly desperate attempts to be at the centre of something – family, friends, love life or work – generate plenty of laughs as well as sympathy. With a wonderful cast and perfect comic timing, a great debut feature from Catalan filmmaker Reguera. Peppered with Galician delicacies, classic family squabbles, and some excruciatingly misguided choices, this film is a delight.
