“It is undeniable that Sorogoyen is a master filmmaker. His work with his actors is impressive, with Nieto, in a fully bilingual performance, and Porier are both natural yet nuanced.” —Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
Ten years have gone by since Elena’s (Marta Nieto) six-year-old son has disappeared. The last thing she heard of him was a phone call he gave her, saying that he was lost on a beach in France and couldn’t find his father. Nowadays, Elena lives on this same beach and manages a restaurant. She is finally beginning to emerge from this tragic episode when she meets a French teenager who strongly reminds her of her lost son. The two of them will embark on a relationship which will sow chaos and distrust around them. Director Rodrigo Sorogoyen's Madre is a continuation of his short film from 2017 which won Goya for Best Fictional Short Film and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film.
