Club Sándwich

by Fernando Eimbcke New World View: Mexico

Single mother Paloma and her 16-year-old son, Hector, spend a week vacationing at a hotel complex on the Mexican coast during off peak season. Sunshine, swimming, music and club sandwiches brighten their days. Nothing, it seems, may disturb their idyll and close relationship, until one day Jazmin, a girl the same age as Hector, appears and turns the mother-son microcosm upside down. Paloma’s dogged attempts to prohibit the two smitten lovers from seeing each other are in vain and she eventually comes to the realisation that she cannot keep Hector to herself forever. Fernando Eimbcke, one of the most stylistically confident comedians of New Mexican Cinema, tells with refinement, sensitivity and laconic humour about the growing up of a child and the parent’s need to let them go.
