February 22, 2020

After Cannibal and The Motive (FIPRESCI Award), Manuel MartinCuenca comes back to Toronto International Film Festival with this last film The Daughter in Contemporary World Cinema.

THE DAUGHTER is a cleverly-constructed dramatic thriller by one of Spain's most intriguing auteurs, Manuel Martín Cuenca, whose Cannibal and The Motive (Fipresci Award at TIFF) proved critical darlings. The film explores an intriguing conundrum, the limits to our right to parenthood, in a tense triangle starring Javier Gutiérrez (Marshland) and Patricia Lopez Arnaiz (While at War) as the barren couple helping teenage pregnant juvenile offender, Irene, portrayed by breaktrough 15-year-old Irene Virgüez.

THE DAUGHTER is shot in the breathtaking landscape of the Andalusian mountains and is co-produced one of Spain's top producers, MOD (While at War, Biutiful and Agora).
