Flowers

Contemporary World Cinema

SIFF Says:

Ane lives a quiet life, trapped in a seemingly loveless relationship, until she suddenly starts to receive weekly, anonymous bouquets of flowers. Meanwhile Tere wants nothing more than a grandchild, but her only son Beñat and his second wife Lourdes have other plans. A sudden, tragic event jolts all of their lives into a new reality, and flowers start to appear anonymously once again, in a different context: they no longer represent passion but a deep emotional memory. With a deep compassion for their characters, directors Jose Mari Goenaga and Jon Garaño (FOR 80 DAYS) examine the lingering consequences of the simple gesture of giving flowers, and the power inherent in something so delicate. “Emotionally precise, subtle, and quietly gripping…This is cinema for grown-ups, made for viewers with the life experience making them capable of recognizing its truths - but at the same time accessibly structured, like a thriller.” Jonathan Holland, “The Hollywood Reporter”
