Valentina’s Mother

Paula, a 79 years old holocaust survivor, is pushed by her only son to move into an old people’s home. She doesn’t want to give up her home and independence and finds a young Polish woman named Valentina to stay with her and help her around. But Valentina brings back memories from Paula’s youth in Poland. Her childhood friend and neighbor, also called Valentina, had played a questionable role in Paula’s family being deported. “Valentina’s Mother” is a tender and bitter film, questioning the human need for vengeance.
