Parallel Mothers (M - Sex Scenes)
Two women, Janis and Ana, coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn't regret it and she is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatized. Janis tries to encourage her while they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between the two, which by chance develops and complicates, and changes their lives in a decisive way.

"From opening frame to closing titles, this is resoundingly, exquisitely, the Penélope Cruz show. But with a lesson in Spanish history." - Times (UK)

"The movie is both bracing and consoling." -

"Feels almost like stepping back into a long conversation with an old friend; a dialogue of decades, told two hours at a time." - Entertainment Weekly
