Whether shoplifting, not paying for an extravagant meal, or weighing the pros and cons of low-key sex work, Leo and María, daughter and mother, bluff and grift to keep up the lifestyle they think they deserve. They bond over common tragedy and an impending eviction in post-crisis Spain.
It’s not easy being broke when you’ve got expensive tastes. A real-life mother-daughter duo find clever ways to hustle in this deadpan, monochrome debut from rising star Amalia Ulman. Transposing the langor of Hong Sang-soo to post-crisis Spain, Ulman takes an absurdist yet tender look at scamming.
