The Amazing Catfish (2014)

  • AmazeCatfish

Mexico | 89 min | DCP | Claudia Sainte-Luce

THE AMAZING CATFISH is a heartwarming tale of two unique women who bond while recuperating in a hospital. Martha, a mother of four rambunctious and imaginative children, finds solace when she meets the younger woman, Claudia, and quickly the two build a strong relationship. When Martha invites Claudia to live with her family, Claudia unwittingly takes on the responsibility of becoming a surrogate mother to Martha's children. (Rotten Tomatoes)

"Writer-director Claudia Sainte-Luce heralds herself as a new talent to watch with "The Amazing Catfish," an outstanding debut of tremendous heart and appeal. The Mexican filmmaker strikes an ideal balance between understated realism and hopeful poignancy in this warm, wry, semi-autobiographical Spanish-language drama about the resilience and elasticity of family." -Inkoo Kang (Los Angeles Times)
