rambleras

Rambleras, Uruguayan director Daniela Speranza's second film, tells the story of three women who struggle with unfulfilled desires, uncertainty and loss, but who also turn to each other for support. Speranza wrote the script herself and added a generous dose of warmth and humour.

The rambla, Montevideo's coastline promenade, plays an important part in the lives of Patricia, Jacqueline and Ofelia. 30-something Patricia spends the nights alone in a lodging house on the rambla. She fears that she'll stay single forever and is glued to her mobile just in case somebody calls. She often walks along the promenade with her boss, 40-something Jacqueline who runs a takeaway with her husband Juanca. Jacqueline is afraid her marriage will collapse, as Juanca doesn't understand her and she doesn't understand why not.

Finally, there's frail Ofelia, aged over eighty and a woman who spent most of her life with her sister. This same sister has however died recently. Ofelia has no one left in the world and becomes increasingly more isolated. She hopes someone will come and take her for a walk along the rambla.
