Just released in cinemas now, starring Oona Chaplin, Natalia Tena and David Verdaguer in an unconventional relationship. In their mid-30s, Eva and Kat’s humble, yet carefree, lifestyle in their London canal boat gets turned upside down when Eva presents Kat with an ultimatum: she wants a child. Kat resists, knowing that it will end the bohemian lifestyle she’s always envisaged with Eva. When Kat’s best friend, Roger, drops in from Barcelona to party with the ladies, however, the three of them toy around with the idea of creating a baby together.
Director Carlos Marques-Marcet says “Where does the desire to have kids come from? I am thirty, the age that biology obligates you to confront one of life’s most important questions: Do I want to have kids or not? And another question comes with it: Is there any other way of having a family that differs from the image I have known throughout my life? The story stems from a mixture between all of the lives of the filmmakers, screenwriters, and actors. For instance, the idea of setting the movie on the London canal arose from the fact that our actress, Natalia Tena, lives in a boat- house there. By fusing our personal and professional lives, real and imaginary, I hope to reveal the kind of truth that only appears in the process of making a movie; I hope to capture that magical point at which character and actor completely fuse into one.”
