Description

A family that has lived for many years in the La Cañada Real shantytown in the suburbs of Madrid is forced to relocate when the area is scheduled for demolition. What director Isabel Lamberti has done here is quite remarkable: she takes the real people who really went through the experience of having their lives turned upside down and re-creates it with a passionate attention to detail and a profoundly humanistic philosophy. One can’t help but be moved.

‘“Last Days of Spring” [the English title] celebrates an act of resistance, but it is also an affectionate portrait of a community out of place, of a freer way of life and a painful transition. Lamberti probes the fluid boundary between documentary and fiction… The result is a film imbued with authentic emotion and entirely without artifice.’—Alfonso Rivera, Cineuropa
