Carmen y Lola Carmen & Lola

About the film

Carmen lives in a gypsy community in the suburbs of Madrid. Like every other woman she has ever met, she is destined to live a life that is repeated generation after generation: getting married and raising as many children as possible. But one day she meets Lola, an uncommon gypsy who dreams about going to university, draws bird graffiti and likes girls.

The director effectively conveys the difficulty of trying to balance love, family relationships, religion, and figuring out what it means to be a woman. Despite its colourful scenery and beautiful bittersweet moments, Carmen & Lola will break your heart, but it will also give you hope for new beginnings.
