Ten Days Without Love

The shadow of Pedro Almodovar hangs over this loopy 2001 Spanish comedy by Miguel Albaladejo, about a hospital psychiatrist (Sergi Lopez) who's deserted by his unfaithful wife and then finds himself in the uncomfortable position of lodging his mother-in-law (Maria Jose Alfonso). The two begin to bond as the particulars of the wife's betrayal come to light, and while trying to recover his wallet from a drug-addicted patient, the doctor unexpectedly strikes up a promising relationship with another woman. Albaladejo deftly juggles the multiple subplots and credibly finds love in the most unlikely encounters; he lacks an original voice, but his obvious fondness for the quirky characters makes this an enjoyable diversion. In Spanish with subtitles. 107 min.
