We are busy. So much so that sometimes the busyness of life gets in the way of truly living it. This is a fact long-term couple Fran (Paco Leon) and Alina (Alexandra Jimenez) face when they suddenly realize that they are approaching their forties and haven’t yet started a family.

Is it already too late? Of course not, their well-meaning friends tell them—You’re still so young! Yet Fran’s half of the equation is problematic—a low sperm count—and the fertility of Alina’s eggs are dropping rapidly. Add a battery of injections, hormones and frozen embryos and you have the recipe for a stew of stress and emotional meltdown for both partners.

With this, the follow-up to her Goya-nominated Plans for Tomorrow, director Juana Macias finds an engaging balance between a high-concept movie about trying to conceive and a nuanced chronicling of a woman’s fluid emotions. This is a romantic comedy in which the fallout from a lover’s quarrel yields the uneasy reminder that we are sometimes incapable of seeing what is best for ourselves. Marcias has found a gifted ally in Jimenez, who plays indecision and insecurity with sympathetic grace, and Leon, who radiates a twinkling boyishness that simultaneously attracts and exasperates. – Jaie Laplante
