Original Title: El nacimiento

An estranged middle-aged couple share a rundown apartment paying little attention to one another. Almost mindlessly they conceive a child. Through this development, they rediscover themselves and their relationship flourishes, strengthened by fear of a miscarriage. The portrayal of the couple’s life is succinct, without dwelling on details, and an engaging atmosphere is conveyed through the most delicate and austere of narrative styles. Varlamov describes the power of love that knows no fear.
