La imatge permanent
PERMANENT PICTURE is a depressing comedy in which Carmen’s world, a 52-year-old casting director who has worked at the same advertising agency for many years, crumbles when her boss retires and the Production company where she works takes a 180 degree turn. Carmen's inner balance is troubled when her superior is replaced by his heir, since she, in her eagerness to modernize the company, threatens to fire her. Besides that, she lives in Barcelona, the next Venice, a city suffocated by its own success, and her personal relationships are limited to her mother, Antonia, who needs a hip operation and suffers from an economic crisis, which she believes is about to crash; her co-workers with whom she spends many hours a day; and the men she meets through a dating app.
