“Spanish machismo is picked apart with surgical precision in Barroso’s engrossing All the Women, Winner of the Goya (Spanish Academy Award) for Best Adapted Screenplay. Nacho (Eduard Fernández), a down and out middle-aged veterinarian, seeks advice from the most important women in his life—his lover, his ex-wife, his mother, his sister-in-law, and his psychologist—after his scheme to steal cattle from his father-in-law falls apart. He soon finds his character indicted by each one of them. A scaled-back, sharp-eyed, David Mamet-inspired deconstruction of the fragile psyches of Spanish and other males, anchored in Fernandez’s memorable central performance.”—The Hollywood Reporter.
