★★★★ "A perfectly drawn slice of humanity, honestly shared." - Stuff.co.nz. 

Between raising her young son, taking care of her ill-tempered, cancer-battling mother, navigating her career as a top-notch lawyer dealing with a major corruption scandal, Silvia (Carolina Sanín) could very well be on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

And what if the answer to all this was simply... love?

★★★★ "One woman's struggle to stay afloat with authenticity and grace" - NZ Herald

★★★★ "While it’s not always easy to watch, Litigante is a wonderfully well-assembled, performed and written piece of work." - Stuff 

★★★★ "Litigante delivers emotional authenticity" "superbly acted domestic drama" - Observer

★★★★ "There's enormous tenderness in this affecting drama" - Guardian

★★★★ "It is a beautiful, universal, heartbreaking observation from a filmmaker fully invested in his story and characters." - Screen-Space

"the movie often nails the fractiousness, fear and pain of caring for a dying loved one, driven home by immaculate performances from Sanin, Gomez and Sarria as two generations of women with more in common than they might like to admit." - Hollywood Reporter

"A moving tribute to maternal strength" - Screen International

★★★★ - Little White Lies
★★★★ - The List
