Alfonso Albacete (1999)

Energetic urban story centred on the uplifting relationship that develops between a Spanish single mother and a slightly older but very vivacious Cuban babysitter. Another strain of the plot follows the eventually-failed romantic relationship between the single mother and a Spanish gay young man. Lively soundtrack by Paco Ortega.
