DIRECTOR: Fernando León de Aranoa - SPAIN

Marcela is a young Bolivian immigrant woman living in Spain. Her sweetness and sensitivity are instantly perceptible, yet when she learns she is pregnant with the child of her flower-thief boyfriend, the terrified Marcela is forced to find a way to support herself and her extravagant husband. Taking a job caring for the ill and elderly Amador, Marcela’s kind nature enables her to make friends with the lonely old man. They quickly share an understanding for one another, revealing the unhappiness in their pasts. But when Amador suddenly dies, Marcela is forced to go to great lengths to pretend he is still alive and collect her needed salary. Full of spirituality—and some hilarious hijinks—Amador tells its poignant story through twisted dark comedy, subtle social critique, and memorable performances. (112 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Familia (96), Barrio (98), Mondays in the Sun (02), Princesas (05).
