Daniela Fejerman shoots in Pamplona ‘¡Mamá está en las redes!’, A funny comedy, starring Malena Alterio, which deals with how new ways of relating can turn established roles in the family upside down. The cast is completed by Eva Ugarte, Antonio Pagudo, Sofía Oria, Oscar Ortuño, Juan Grandinetti, Ben Temple, Antonio Garrido and María Castro.
Malena Alterio gives life to Clara, the mother of two young teenagers, a woman open to new experiences, although sometimes they overwhelm her … In Clara’s juggling and her men we see a new woman, who allows herself to question love romantic and its myths. Who seeks his own truth, and goes with it ahead … when he has no other choice. The plot starts from the premise of this young divorced mother, who decides to rebuild her life by searching for relationships on the Internet.
What goes through the mind of a twenty-something when he finds his own mother’s profile on a dating app? Yes, her mother is still young. Yes, she is divorced from her father and has the right to rebuild her life, but… There are only men there who are going to use her and then leave her lying down… Like himself. Dani and his sister Milena will embark on the delirious adventure of boycotting their mother’s affairs, and they will go to sack when the woman begins a more serious relationship with an Argentine yogurt, convinced that he is only going to make her suffer … Only that the strategies siblings will have the opposite effect as desired and nothing will turn out as they expect.
According to Daniela Fejerman (‘My mother likes women’, ‘Semen, a love story’, ‘7 minutes’, ‘The adoption’), “it is no longer clear what to expect from a mother, or from a father, nor of a son, and that breaking of expectations plunges us into confusion. If for children to imagine that their parents have a sexual life is already disturbing, to assume that a divorced mother not only has the right to rebuild her life, but that she can actively seek sex, and with men of all ages, and do so as well. through an application that they themselves use to flirt, it is too much «. For the director, ‘Mom is on social media!’ investigates “in the new ways of relating that can turn upside down the roles established in the family, since it is the children – fundamentally the male child – who try to control, and repress, a mother who is clear on things.”
Filming of ‘Mom is in the networks!’.
For Malena Alterio, in this case the mother boycotted by her children, «they think that their mother is a weak woman and they are going to use her, believing the thief that they are all of their condition. In this eagerness to protect her, they annoy her dates, they make trouble for her and, suddenly, things happen in such a way that she ends up with three couples at the same time. And that which at the beginning was quite messy and conflictive to sustain, three relationships at the same time without them knowing, is going to lead to making the decision that, well … why not? ».
