THE FILM REVIEW (FR 9) – Thi Mai

See all my film reviews here.

You will need a box of tissues if you watch this delightful Spanish language film (2017) – Thi May – a light but heartwarming comedy.

A Spanish mother’s daughter is killed in a car accident.  The single daughter was, at the time of her death, about to adopt a child from an orphanage in Hanoi, Vietnam.  The child is called Thi Mai.

The Mother, Carmen (Carmen Machi), travels to Vietnam with her two best women friends (Rosa (Adriana Ozores) and Elvira (Aitana Sánchez-Gijón)) in an effort to adopt the child her daughter would have adopted had she not died. 

Naturally, Carmen and her friends run into all sorts of cultural and legal problems when they arrive, unannounced, in Hanoi and try, with no official backing, paperwork or anything else, to adopt Thi Mai.

Carmen MachiAdriana Ozores and Aitana Sánchez-Gijón give excellent performances.

This is a wonderful film and I give it the PhotoNomad 10/10 award.

Watch the trailer (below) and I am sure you will be hooked!
