Synopsis

At a time when La La Land has reopened the world’s eyes again to the musical in film form, writer-director Eduard Cortés enjoys his own fair share of the Spanish-language awards and accolades with his musical, At Your Doorstep. But far from presenting froth and daydreams, this film stays rooted in social realism; a musical by way of Ken Loach.

 

It is the Global Financial Crisis and the explosion of Spain’s housing bubble. Sonia (Silvia Pérez Cruz) and her husband, Dani (Ivan Massagué, Pan’s Labyrinth), move with their 10 year-old daughter into the home of Sonia’s parents when they are unable to make mortgage payments. However, with such a move comes its own set of problems.

 

The lack of space, absence of privacy, the couple’s crumbling self-esteem and a mother (Adriana Ozores) who believes her daughter’s financial failings have brought shame on the family underpin a story that, unfortunately, continues to resonate. The singing comes as an expression of pent-up emotion rather than offering cinematic relief from the pressures of this family’s travails.

Playing in the Spanish Film Festival in Australia, 2017.
