Anita Takes Another Chance

After three decades working the ticket window of a Barcelona movie house, a romantic middle-aged widow (Rosa Maria Sarda) loses her job when the theater is torn down but then winds up having a fling with a married construction worker who's building a multiplex in its place. This 2000 comedy by Ventura Pons (Beloved/Friend) manages to be both wistful and celebratory; Sarda spices up her drab daily routine with cinematic fantasies, yet in her comments to the camera she fully recognizes the predicaments of aging. She's an extremely likable actor, and under Pons's observant direction she captures the radiance and the weariness of a late bloomer. 90 min.
