Movie Reviews

Nice, fun little movie with Leonor Watling. Terrible market
Andy Orrock | Dallas, TX | 10/08/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Another peculiar and muddled US marketing campaign has buried any chance that a smart little Spanish release like "My Mother Likes Women" will find an audience here stateside. Let's start with the fact that the DVD coverbox and trailer push this as some sort of generic ensemble with a bunch of Spanish actresses that the distributors are sure we've never heard of. So, we're told that this movie stars Rosa Maria Sadra, Leonor Watling and Maria Pujalte, and - oh by the way - Watling was in "Bad Education" and "In the City."

Well now. This is not an ensemble movie. It's Watling's film, plain and simple. She's one of Spain's hottest stars. In fact, she's one of Europe's hottest stars. And, of her credits, there's the small matter of her breakout star turn in Almodovar's "Talk to Her," which just goes without mention anywhere in the marketing. By contrast, her role in "Bad Education" is small and uncredited. A bit of a star turn for her friend, Mr. Almodovar. Failing to ride the draft of Ms. Watling's true source of fame is a huge missed opportunity. She's frenetic and charming here as the self-doubting, shakily confident Elvira.

The DVD release has nothing on it in terms of attractive extras. The only thing worth glancing at is the trailer. Watch it after the movie to see how pathetically low-rent and off-base it is. It does the movie absolutely no service or justice at all.

One kudo due the distributors: the sub-titles are extraordinarily well-done. One of the protagonists is a Czech emigree to Spain and she speaks fluent but slightly broken Spanish. The sub-titles do a wonderful job evoking the essence of her fractured speaking style."
Very funny and sweet

"This movie is about family. The acting is wonderful. The performances are very funny. This is a great spanish film. The lesbian characters and plot is substantial but there is more to the film as well. It is well-done and well-rounded."

"buy this movie, it's great. i mean i'm german, barely speaking any spanish and my english is also not the best (which explains why i'm writing this slow HA!) but this is a fantastic movie. the story is brilliant and the actresses are great. this is the best stuff i've seen since ?the ten rules" and ?late bloomers". forget all these teenager coming out stories, they are nice but this is totally different. this is not about a 15 year old sweetie that falls madly in love with her schoolmate. this is a 50 year old sweetie that falls madly in love with a cutie as old as her youngest daughter. think about the possibilities! this is drama, this is comedy, this is a movie you must have! watch it!

and if you like it, think about ?gasoline" and ?101 reykjavik"."
Cute, sassy, sexy, and witty!

"This movie is great! It's a hilariously cute movie with a fun and talented
cast, a whitty script, and ultimately an adorable love story. A coming out
story with the most clever of twists, "My Mother Likes Women" ("A Mi Madre
Les Gusta Las Mujeres") is a lesbian romantic comedy classic that everyone
will adore.

Sophia is a divorced Spanish woman with three adoring, grown-up daughters.
And, as she announces during her quiet birthday celebration, she has
fallen in love. Immediately ecstatic for their mother, the three women are
stopped dead in their tracks when they discover just who their mother's
new love is -- a beautiful Czech woman closer to their age than their
mother's. The daughters' reactions are brilliantly realistic and all over
the map. Suddenly everything they thought they knew about relationships
and love is turned upside down, and everyone is sent into an uproariously
funny and tragic search for how to deal with love and desire.

Tongue-in-cheek humor throughout, this movie is absolutely a joy to watch.
If you know Spanish, it's an added bonus, but the English subtitles are
superb and easy to read. The characters are genuine, the European scenery
extravagant, and the plot extremely clever. "My Mother Likes Women" is
laced with humor, romance, and ultimately, a coming out story for
everyone. Cute, sassy, sexy, and witty. Great movie."
