A successful young novelist in Spain (Nuria Prims) who writes thinly veiled accounts of her hedonistic social circle is jolted from a defiantly carefree love life by an Indian immigrant (Zack Qureshi) whose persistence as a suitor is matched only by his devotion to Islam. Writer-director Isabel Gardela resists the obvious drama of clashing cultures, focusing instead on the couple’s growing ambivalence about their motives in the relationship. Her nuanced approach to the material is enhanced by the leads, who evince a perfect blend of self-righteousness, vulnerability, and genuine affection. 93 min.
