Like Francois Ozon's 8 Women (2002), this Spanish comedy showcases a gallery of popular actresses (Carmen Maura, Marisa Paredes, Veronica Forque, Mercedes Sampietro, Betiana Blum), but writer-director Manuel Gomez Pereira gives them nothing to work with aside from tiresome romantic complications. As the mothers of engaged gay men, they converge in Madrid to attend a mass ceremony celebrating Spain's legalization of same-sex marriage. Maura has the only good story line, playing a hotel manager whose relationship with her head chef alternates between tense labor negotiations and hot sex. In Spanish with subtitles. R, 107 min.
