"A movie of infinite tenderness" - TIME Magazine

Two women 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 those hours will create a very close link between the two, which by chance develops and becomes complicated, changing their lives in a decisive way.


“‘Madres Paralelas’ is a movie of infinite tenderness, that rare ode to motherhood that acknowledges mothers as women first and mothers second. Penélope Cruz is astonishing here, in what may be the best performance of her career so far.” - TIME Magazine
