Antigua, My Life (Spanish: Antigua vida mía) is a 2001 Argentine-Spanish drama film directed by Héctor Olivera and written by Ángeles González Sinde, from the novel by Marcela Serrano.[1][2] It stars Ana Belén and Cecilia Roth. Many scenes of the film were shot in Guatemala.


Two upper middle class women from Buenos Aires are trapped in relationships that aren't working well. One is in an abusive relationship, the other is selfish towards her family. The catalyst for change is the murder of the abusive husband by his wife, played by Roth. Her best friend tries to help her through this process, and by doing so has to tackle her own problems.
