Parallel Mothers is already one of the best acted films of 2022, unfortunately I don’t know how many people will see it because of the lengthy two hour subtitled film is almost like reading a book to many people. It gives us the best Penelope Cruz performance in decades. Possibly of her career.
It’s a gut-wrench of a movie with two moms sharing a hospital room together, while getting to know each other as human beings and wanting to be there for each other. Now this movie could be considered every parents worst dream. I won’t go into many details about it because it would spoil a lot and we don’t do that here.
However, I can say the film is beautifully shot and directed. It has the feeling that it will get re-released in theaters to get momentum at the end of the year for best actress for Penelope sake because it needs to. If you want a really emotionally driven movie that will move you to the core. Parallel Mothers will be the movie for you to see in theaters or at home.
Overall grade: 3.5/5 stars
