Winner of the Best First Feature at the Berlin Film Festival, Carla Simón's autobiographical drama is a glorious evocation of childhood. Following the death of her mother, six-year-old Frida moves to the countryside to live with her aunt and uncle. It's a challenge for Frida, who now has a little sister to take care of and she naively wonders if running away would be the best solution to her problems. But as the summer progresses, Frida's mood gradually changes and new pleasures are to be found in this strange world. Occasional family outings to a local fiesta or a swimming pool, cooking or listening to jazz in the garden bring moments of happiness and slowly, Frida realises that as she is there to stay she has to adapt to the new environment. ★★★★★ "So lovely it hurts" - Charlotte O'Sullivan, Evening Standard ★★★★★ "It destroyed me" - Wendy Ide, The Observer ★★★★★ "Conveys all the mysteries of childhood and a fair few of its pains" - Sergi Sanchez, Time Out ★★★★★ "A jewel. In its subtlety, richness and warmth it is entirely beguiling" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
