The call of motherhood

The Rialto theatre in Limassol will complete its summer cinema season on Tuesday with a screening of the 2015 Chilean drama La Vida Sexual De Las Plantas (Sex Life of Plants).

The film, directed by Sebastian Brahm, has been called a “deceptively simple, human story about a woman’s right to decide the use of her body,” by the Hollywood Reporter. It tells the story of landscape architect Barbara who is madly in love with Guillermo – with whom she wants to have a child.

The pair go off on a plant-gathering trip together and while there Guillermo suffers a head injury that leaves him with cognitive disabilities. Realising the man she’s in love with is now damaged, and with her biological clock ticking, Barbara seeks a new partner in Nils. Nils is in his forties, has no children and he asks her to move in with him. This seems to be the perfect set-up but there is only one problem, Barbara is haunted by the memory of her lost love.

La Vida Sexual De Las Plantas
Screening of the Chilean drama. July 26. Rialto theatre, Limassol. 9pm. €5. Tel: 77-777745
