The relationship of 30-year-old trainee-lawyer Lluís (David Verdaguer, Summer 1993 SFF17) and journalist Vir (María Rodríguez) is still in its early stages. Having moved in together, the couple are faced with an unexpected pregnancy. After an emotional debate, the couple decide to embark on the adventure of bringing a child into the world. As the whirlwind experience unfolds with euphoria, heartbreak, and everything in between, Lluís and María’s communication breaks down and they painfully ignore the impending crisis of their romantic relationship until it reaches breaking point.
Following on from the multi-award-winning films Long Distance (2014) and Anchor and Hope (2017), Catalan Goya Award-winning director Carlos Marqués-Marcet rounds off his trilogy about couples falling out of love by expertly capturing the experiences of two new parents grappling with parenthood. Both sensitive and powerful, The Days to Come is brought alive by the exceptional performances of both lead actors (who are in a real-life relationship) and is made all the more powerful as it documents the actual pregnancy of the actress María Rodríguez.
Please note the film will screen with English subtitles during the festival.
