) and Miki Esparbé (appearing a short while ago in the series Smiley).

The story introduces us to the titular Eva: a 50-year-old woman, who has been married for more than 20 years and has two teenage children. During a business trip to the Italian capital, she realises she wants to fall in love again before it’s too late. Once back in Barcelona, she begins a new life as a single woman, and gets stuck into the game of seduction and romance. Over the course of one year, we will follow this woman who has turned her world upside down in search of a feeling.

Speaking about his new movie, Gay stated: “I suppose that all films have an origin, a moment or a place where something happens and you see the seed take root. It all began when, one evening, we found out by chance that our friend, who is not called Eva, was busy frequenting rental apartments without telling anyone, let alone her husband. That was the moment when this comedy began to take shape inside of me: a comedy that has to be taken very seriously. It’s brimming with misunderstandings, doubts, unexpected lies, absurd moments and ridiculous situations. Because that’s what happens when feelings get the better of us and, in their own way, make the decisions that we never dare to make. It’s a comedy that recounts the most significant moments in Eva’s story over the course of one year.”

My Friend Eva is a production by Marta Esteban for Impossible Films, which has financed some of Gay’s previous films, and Alexfilm AIE. It boasts the involvement of RTVEMovistar Plus+ and 3Cat, support from the ICAA, the participation of CreA SGR and funding from ICO. Filmax is overseeing both its international sales and its Spanish distribution.
