The Days to Come

Carlos Marqués-Marcet
Els dies que vindran
Spain 2019 / 95’
The Best of Dorien B. The Earth

Can you imagine me raising a child? After all, I lose my keys once a week ... Vir and her partner, Lluís, are not prepared for parenthood—their relationship is fresh, unproven, lacking specifics and a serious plan. An unexpected pregnancy changes everything, forcing the couple to deal not only with the challenge of raising a child but also with a speeding carousel of emotions, tensions and conflicts. The story told by Marqués-Marcet is simple but extraordinarily evocative, as it combines elements of fiction and documentary: although the scenarios may be staged, the relationship between the actors playing the couple is real, as are the pregnancy and childbirth. The plot is thus an intimate record of very real experiences and situations—chronicle of a few extraordinary months of incredible intensity and the power of interaction. It is a story that is as old as the world and at the same time always new.
