Director Statement

My Grand Farewell is a women's ensemble comedy. The theme of the film is, of course, love, but we always take the feminine point of view and always focus on the climax: the breakup, that moment when everything is at a point of breaking and blowing up. This is the case of Sara, the main role and the thread of the story -she apparently has a placid existence until the day her boyfriend sues for her hand and then she begins to get entangled in all the preparations for the wedding, but is it what she really wants to do? This is the case of her would-be sister-in-law, Milagri, who keeps an unspeakable secret for which she fears to lose her husband. And finally, this is the case of Puri, the slum girl willing to do anything to get her rich and attractive boyfriend back. The source from which the drama appears is the same from where the comedy springs. My Grand Farewell is a movie for all audiences.
