NEVER TOO LATE

Spain, 1977 (MIFF 1978)

Director: Jaime de Armiñ├ín

A seventy-three year old spinster spies on a young couple in an apartment across the block. She watches as they make love. She is a spinster, she has never experienced sex, and she is profoundly affected by the beauty of what she sees.

One day they meet and she becomes friendly with the young man. She tells him that she has become pregnant to him, simply by having watched him make love to his wife. He is intrigued by her naivety and humours her, making his wife jealous.

Eventually all three of them spend a weekend in the old lady s house, where their problems are resolved .
