My Mother Likes Women ★★ A mi madre le gustan las mujeres 2002

Screwy, somewhat strained, Spanish comedy has successful, middle-aged classical pianist Sofia (Sarda) introducing her younger, female lover Eliska (Sirova), a shy Czech immigrant, to her three shocked daughters. Conservative, married Jimena (Pujalte) is the eldest, would-be writer Elvira (Watling) is the neurotic middle child, and the youngest, Sol (Abascal), is a breezy pop singer willing to follow her sisters' opinion. Which is that Eliska is a gold-digger and has to be gotten rid of. Czech and Spanish with subtitles. 96m/C DVD .
