This quiet, intensely memorable film tells the interlocking story of three women whose lives are affected by floral tributes. Ane is suffering a midlife crisis, trapped in a seemingly loveless marriage, when she begins receiving a beautiful bouquet weekly from an anonymous admirer. At first her husband ignores them, but soon he becomes jealous; Ane becomes more and more eager to find out who is sending them. Lourdes is troubled in her marriage by a domineering mother-in-law who thinks she is not good enough for her only son. A sudden, tragic event jolts all of their lives, and flowers start to appear anonymously once again, but this time, instead of passion, they represent an emotional memory. With a deep compassion for their characters, directors Jose Mari Goenaga and Jon Garaño examine the unexpected reverberations of a simple yet charged gesture while reflecting on romance, loss, memory and missed connections. Flowers is the first film in the Basque language to be chosen by Spain as its submission to the Foreign Language Film category at the Academy Awards. (Fully subtitled)
