Back to Stay

A.k.a. "Abrir puertas y ventanas". Three women react in different ways to a family crisis in this drama from Argentina. Marina (Maria Canale), Sofia (Martina Juncadella) and Violeta (Ailin Salas) are three sisters who were raised by their grandmother and still live in her home. When Grandmother dies, all three are emotionally devastated, but they find themselves at odds about what to do. Marina, the oldest, doesn't want to upset the order of things and prefers to keep everything as her grandmother left it. Sofia, however, thinks they should move forward and wants to redecorate the house. And Violeta is a slacker who has retreated into lethargy, losing what little ambition she has left in the wake of the tragedy. Debut feature film from writer/director Milagros Mumenthaler won her the Golden Leopard at the 2011 Locarno International Film Festival.
