FOR THE TIME BEING
O.V. in German, Spanish and English subtitled in English and Spanish
A very powerful debut feature, wrapped and subjugated in the landscape of the Sierra Morena, and in an atmosphere that blends summer lethargy with the emotional tension of its protagonists. To the sound of the merciless squeaking of the cicadas and with a blazing sun, Larissa and her twins arrive from Germany to the isolated house where their mother and sister-in-law welcome them. The flight of the children's father is delayed, it seems he will never arrive. A veil of anxiety spreads, a wave of fires threatens, water shortage and heat prevails, a series of explosions, external and internal, lurk.
