Manuela and Rosario are two sisters who, after years of refusing to speak to each other because of a family secret, meet unexpectedly at their grandchildren’s birthday party. The children managed to meet thanks to their guardians Trini and Milagros, who are inseparable friends. When they discover the conflict between the little ones, the prying neighbors will make a clumsy, slightly goofy but loving attempt to reconcile the two families. With both scriptwriting and directing supported by Marta Diaz by Lope Diaz, Los buenos modals (bed. “Good manners”) features a cast consisting of Gloria Munoz (Llueven vacas [+see also:

“It’s a film about family – not just blood ties, but also the family we choose and our friends. It also addresses the theme of women who have provided for their families and who are now left alone”, explained the director during the presentation she made in the “5 minutes of film” section (which broadcasts titles still unfinished) from the recent 25e Málaga Film Festival. The film was shot last fall on location in Barcelona, ​​and is currently nearing the end of post-production.

Meanwhile, at the same presentation in Malaga, the producer mercedes gamero specifies that the film also talks about “the role of grandparents, as childminders and substitutes for parents at different times in life, and the team behind this film, made up mainly of women, has contributed to establishing this complicity both through its message only through his filming”.
