PREVIEW Parallel Mothers (Madres paralelas)
Institute of Contemporary Arts
May 2022
Parallel Mothers (Madres paralelas), dir. Pedro Almodóvar, Spain 2021, 123 min., Spanish with English subtitles, 15


Pedro Almodóvar is in top form with this comedy-drama about a chance encounter leading to a lifelong connection. Janis (Cruz) and Ana (Smit) are two expectant single mothers who meet in a maternity ward as they prepare to give birth. Despite a significant age gap between them, and differing views on their impending accidental births, they bond over the experience as they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors, and find their lives irrevocably connected as a result. 

Only Almodóvar could deliver such an accomplished and confident piece of filmmaking that doesn’t miss a beat in its writing or delivery.
