| Witty, Funny and Highly Entertaining
In Madrid, the divorced middle-age pianist Sofía (Rosa Maria Sardà) discloses to her daughters Elvira (Leonor Watling), Gimena (María Pujalte) and Sol (Silvia Abascal) on the day of her birthday that she is in love with the talented Czechoslovak pianist Aliska (Eliska Sirová), who is twenty-years younger than she.

The bigoted sisters are shocked with the revelation and do not accept the idea that their mother is lesbian. Elvira is an insecure and neurotic young aspirant writer that has a lousy job in a publishing house; Sol is the singer of a rock band; and Gimena is married with a boy and has a troubled marriage with Raúl.

When they discover that her mother has lent all her savings to support the education of Aliska, they decide to seduce the girlfriend to make her leave their mother. But when Aliska returns to her country alone and their mother is very depressed, they need to try to revert the situation. Meanwhile the nervous Elvira meets the writer Miguel (Chisco Amado) and has a clumsy relationship with him.

"A Mi Madre le Gustan las Mujeres" is a witty, funny and highly entertaining comedy with a delightful story of prejudice against sexual preference. The unknown (in Brazil) Leonor Watling is simply fantastic in the role of an unstable end neurotic young woman.

There are memorable scenes, like Sol singing her song dedicated to her mother in a rock'n'roll concert; or Elvira having lunch with her boss and Miguel; or the groom kissing the bride in the wedding. In the end, I laughed a lot with this light-hearted dramatic comedy. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Minha Mãe Gosta de Mulher" ("My Mother Likes Woman")
