Movie synopsis: It's night and David Miller is getting ready to commit legal suicide in a motel room. He's waiting for Claire from the agency, who is to walk him through the process according to official regulations, so that the embittered David can say goodbye to the world. However, Claire's broken her ribs a chatty volunteer, Esperanza (a Spanish star and Pedro Almodóvar's muse, Carmen Maura) is her substitute. The last thing missing is a witness, whose role might be fulfilled by a male prostitute from the next room. In a beautiful visual stylisation with playful intermezzos, the motley trio’s night unfolds, offering a subversive conversational comedy about euthanasia and the meaning of life viewed with empathy and a unique sense of the bizarre.
Guests: Carmen Maura
