Film Details

UK Premiere

Short Synopsis:

A Spanish indie drama about the lives and turbulant relationships of two sisters living in Barcelona.

Review:

Trash centres on two sisters, Clara and Susana and their mother who has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. Susana is heavily pregnant and her partner Christian is regularly away on business while Clara’s boyfriend David is on the verge of signing a record deal with his rock band, from whom the film gets its title.

Things start to unravel when Clara catches David cheating on her with his bandmate, who also happens to be her best friend and the following series of events see her pushed to the edge. Susana’s relationship is similarly in turmoil as Christian’s executive lifestyle constantly leads him astray. Christian seems to feel remorse for his infidelities while David’s life spirals out of control as he indulges his hedonistic urges at the cost of his band, his relationships and himself.

Skilfully directed by Carles Torras, complex subplots are weaved into the central plot to add further depth to the story: the sisters’ sickly mother finds solace in an unexpected place and Clara’s colleague Nacho develops an unhealthy obsession. This is a serious and stylish piece of independent cinema about the emotional costs of infidelity and sexual promiscuity with powerful performances and an award winning original score.
