and Patsy didn't.

It's okay, we have accidents.

OK. Under the girls' bed,

in the green box,

there's another sweater under there.

Okay, put up your arms.

Come on, we've got to take this off,

okay girlie?

Got a little bit of milk on you.

Are you stuck?

Where's Patsy? I don't know.

There's Patsy.

There you go. Here you go.

Put that on.

Lance's brother rang me last night.

He said he might have something for me.

No way!


Where are the keys?

I can't find the keys.

- They're still in the ignition, I think.

- They are?

Girls, you've got to put on

your jackets.

Mommy, do I have to tell Patsy

where babies come from?

- I think she's too little.

- She is too little.

Can you put on your jacket first?

They opened a swimming pool

business in Wilmington Drive.

- No way.

- Yeah.

I know.

- Good luck.

- Yeah, thank you.

Can you...

You pick up the girls from school,

because I might not be back

till later.

- Yeah, sure. No problem.

- Okay. Guys?

Put on your hats

and gloves, okay?

I'm going to warm up the car and we're

going to be gone in two minutes, okay?

Two minutes. Yes!

I want you to help Patsy

with hers as well, okay?

So get yours on and help.

- Bye, guys. Have a good day.

- Bye, Mom.

I got you, I got you.


I'm hanging out some wash. You got

anything you want me to hang out?

Ann, are you in there?

Put your clothes in the bag,

and put on the robe.

Do you know

if this is going to take long?

- I'm supposed to pick up my kids.

- I really have no idea.

Can I just go tell my Mom

to pick them up for me?

We can't make any exceptions.

Is your mother outside?

Yeah, she came with me.

Ann Matland.

- I forgot to tell her.

- I'll see what I can do.

Now if you could get undressed

or you really will be here all day.

Isabel Coixet

Isabel Coixet Castillo (Catalan pronunciation: [izəˈβɛɫ kuˈʃɛt]; born 9 April 1960) is a Spanish film director. She is one of the most prolific film directors of contemporary Spain, having directed twelve feature-length films since the beginning of her film career in 1988, in addition to documentary films, shorts and commercials. Her films follow a departure from traditional national cinema of Spain, and help to “untangle films from their national context, ... clearing the path for thinking about national film from different perspectives.” The recurring themes of “emotions, feelings and existential conflict” coupled with her distinct visual style secure the “multifaceted (she directs, writes, produces and acts)” filmmaker's status as a “Catalan auteur”. more…
