Tender Hours

Film

Time Out says

A playwright rehearses his latest work, a melodrama that delves into his own childhood incest fantasies and his adult obsession with understanding his mother's character and suicide. As in Cria Cuervos, Saura has his actors take double, even triple roles, and moves deftly between past and present, dream, fiction and memory, putting on a bravura display of technique which dazzles by its skill, but which - despite the title (surely ironic) - has an emotional chilliness that is ultimately faintly unpleasant.
