“An empathetic but unvarnished account of a single mother’s subsistence at the sharp edge of Spain’s economic crisis which evokes the films of Ken Loach at his most socially aware.” — The Hollywood Reporter

Techo Y Comida

Rocío (Natalia de Molina, in A Goya award-winning performance) is a young single mother who has been without work for three and a half years. She is on the edge of a precipice, living day-to-day off odd jobs and the generosity of her neighbours. As she fights to keep her apartment she struggles to provide for her eight-year-old son Adrián. When Rocío’s gas canister runs out or when her water is turned off, she is faced with an impossible decision: if she replaces them, there is no money to feed her son.

There is an understated naturalism to the performances in this perfect storm of misfortune. De Molina’s haunting central performance is painfully expressive and gives a somber, unsentimental but compelling X-ray view of a southern Europe in crisis.
