My Mother Likes Women Review


Very Good
Despite a horrificly bad title and a pedestrian story, My Mother Likes Women (God, I have trouble even typing that) is a surprising good time.

Here's the setup: Three sisters dote on their divorced mother (Rosa María Sardà), a concert pianist, but find themselves shocked when she turns up attached to a young Czech girl who speaks broken Spanish. After plenty of Woody Allen-style neurosis, the trio hatches a plan to break up mom and lover by finding a surrogate for the Czech's affections. Eventually this falls on the most troubled of the sisters, Elvira (Leonor Watling), and soon enough mom is single again.

If this all sounds complex, it isn't.
