Flowers

Ane’s life turns around when an anonymously delivered bunch of flowers starts arriving at her home every week, always at the same time. Lourdes and Tere are also receiving mysterious bunches of flowers. Every week, an unknown person lays a bunch of flowers in memory of someone who was important in their lives. This is the tale of three women and three ordinary lives changed by nothing more than some flowers; flowers that make each one feel emotions they’d thought were long gone...

Winner of Best Spanish Film at Sant Jordi Awards 2015 and nominated for Best Film ant the 2015 Goya Awards.

**The ESFF is very excited to welcome José Mari Goenaga, director of 'Flowers', who will present the film and answer some questions of the audience. The film will also be preceded by the screening of the short film 'Samina', by Kristina Zorita.

Reviews

"An elegantly lensed, heartwarming story (...) If Joe Mankiewicz were alive, one could imagine him wanting to remake 'Flowers'" (Jay Weissberg: Variety)

"As beguiling and beautifully structured as the flowers of its title (...) one of the best Basque language films ever made" (Jonathan Holland: The Hollywood Reporter)
