2018 / Spain – France /125 mins
Spanish with English subt.
“A Great deal of style and exquisite composition on and Almodovar-esque story”
“This stylish, elegant and enigmatic feature by one of Spain’s most imaginative directors explores the notion of reality, imitation and artistic creation.”
Lila Cassen was the most successful Spanish singer of the 90s until she disappeared mysteriously from one day to the next. Ten years later, Lila is preparing her triumphant return to the stage but shortly before the eagerly awaited date, she loses her memory as the result of an accident. Violeta is dominated by her conflictive daughter.
Following the success of Magical Girl, Carlos Vermut returns with this harrowing story, a female-driven drama tight-roping the edge of sanity that will shake audiences seeking quality film to their core. QUIÉN TE CANTARÁ positions its director as the successor of Pedro Almodóvar in his darkest and most perturbing sense with titles like The Skin I Live In and All About my Mother.
