Description: Maria (Ana Fernandez), whose parents live in the country, cannot stand her father's authoritarian ways and moves to the city. She finds a job as a cleaner and tries to survive in a wretched apartment in the shabby part of a big city. She is pregnant, and the fact that her boyfriend has abandoned her does not help matters. When her father goes to the hospital for an operation, her mother comes to stay with her. Her neighbor, an old recluse whose only friend is his dog, begins to come out of his shell and these three lost souls try to give each other (and especially Maria) the strength to start over. A sensitive portrait of urban isolation and loneliness, Solas received the Panorama People's Choice Award at the 49th International Berlin Film Festival, 1999.~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, All Movie Guide
