Product Description:

Almodovar regular Maura stars in this comedy about a modern woman who soldiers on in the battle of the sexes- from arguing with her husband to stress in the workplace. A perceptive comedy with a strong performance from Maura. From the producer of BELLE EPOQUE.

Description by Image Entertainment:

Carmen's life is pretty complicated. She has just turned 42, is on her third marriage, has two children and has just adopted her husband's son. She also juggles a career as a journalist, her husband's amorous attentions, and then always the housework. Feeling overwhelmed with all she has to handle everyday, Carmen contemplates a divorce, but just when she thinks the pressure is too much, she finds help in the last place she expected. Starring Spain's reigning favorite actress Carmen Maura (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown), "How to be a Woman and Not Die in the Attempt" is a knowing comedy that brings new life to the battle of the sexes.
