La Vida Que te Espera (2004)

La Vida Que te Espera stars Juan Diego as Gildo, a farmer who becomes the prime suspect of the authorities when an associate of his is murdered. His rural life does not appeal to his two daughters, and their lack of enthusiasm is compounded when the son of the dead man arrives with motives of his own. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide

A couple of plot twists in this nice film about a single parent father. But really the two daughters were slightly different in their attitude toward the farm. The youngest one obviously did not want to be there but the older one was willing to sacrifice some of her freedoms for the younger one and for stability of the family. Even in the end the two daughters enter their cow in the contest.

"What goes unsaid gets undone."

Pasiegos in Spanish. Pas and Miera valleys.

Rating: 3 (/5)
