Living through the female midlife crisis (Spanish perspective)

As "Rosa's Wedding" (2020 release from Spain; 97 min.) opens, we are introduced to Rosa, a 40-something who is overwhelmed by well-wishers as she is running a minim-marathon, and she doesn't stop at the finish line, literally fleeing everyone. (Turns out it was a bad dream.) At work, at home, with family, she is counted on for many things, and Rosa is tired of it. But can she get out of the human rat race?

Couple of comments: this is the latest film from Spanish director.(and co-writer) Iciar Bollain. Here she brings us a look at a midlife crisis by a 40-something woman who seemingly does the job of 3-4-5 people. I suppose this is Spain's answer to Chile's 2013 "Gloria" or even the US 1978 film "An Unmarried Woman". Bollain keeps the tone fairly light (it is a comedy after all),but the gender points are made crystal clear and unmistaken. And with family like that, who needs enemies anyway? Candela Pena is excellent in the title role, but the support staff is quite good as well. The film was shot in and around in Valencia (southeastern Spain),and that only adds to the appeal of the film.

"Rosa's Wedding" was released in Spain but recently popped up on HBO Max, where I caught it. If you are in the mood for a light comedy that looks at at the midlife crisis from the woman's perspective or are simply looking for a good foreign movie, I'd readily suggest you check this out, and draw your own conclusion.

Brilliant comedy with an edge

Brilliant romantic comedy subversive of the patriarchal model, it takes up years after they were married and he has disappeared, when the rest of her family relies on her. From the initial sequence where Rosa is on her own giving it her all, and more as she collapses on the beach, to the final party on the beach with the extended family who still do not understand her needs. Set in the region of Valencia and bilingual, the situation is universal but its specificity recalls Berlanga's satirical wit as it resets it from a woman's perspective.
