Interesting rural drama with good cast and including gorgeous outdoors from Cantabria
21 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Rural tale set in wonderful landscapes , nicely starred by the great José Luis López Vázquez and being compellingly directed by Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón . It deals with the stubborn publisher and grandfather Ramiro (José Luís López Vázquez) is on vacation at a mountain inn in the company of his family . He decides to send his people to Madrid and stay in a shelter , saying that his health needs it . But the reason is another one , as he meets an illiterate mute young (Kiti Manver) and as he is keen on her , as he attempts to teach speak , but things go wrong .

This is an intense rural drama crammed with social habits , family life and a particular relationship between two strange characters . Its style is pretty much rural and realistic as well in the atmosphere as in the fresh dialog . This film describes the rural life , including a character studio of local people and an enjoyable relationship among an old publisher and a young girl along with other villagers . This provoking drama to be continued in 1984 when Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón directs ¨Feroz¨ in which a psychologist attempts to teach a bear to behave as a human being , being also set in Cantabrian mountains and made in similar atmosphere to ¨Habla Mudita¨. Nicely produced by the prestigious producer Elias Querejeta who financed the famous ¨El Espiritu De La Colmena¨ ; when between Querejeta and Erice emerged problems , some shots from the ¨Habla Mudita¨'s Cantabrian landscapes were taken to insert them in "The Spirit of the Beehive" . Well played by known and notorious actors such as : José Luis López Vázquez who gives a masterful acting , Antonio Gamero , Francisco Guijar , the recently deceased Francisco Algora as the mute and Kiti Manver film debut playing the young countrywoman . Good production design by Mario Ortiz and correctly reflecting the atmosphere by that time and excellent location . Splendid photography with juicy atmosphere by Luis Cuadrado and Teo Escamilla , two greatest cameramen of the Spanish cinema . Being appropriately filmed on location , showing one colorful filming from Valle Natural Park of Oliva , Picos Europa , Bejes ,Bores , Santander, Cantabria , North of Spain . And including an evocative classical music by the composer Frank Schubert .

The motion picture produced by magnificent producer Elias Querejeta was all rightly directed by Manuel Gutierrez Aragon , a good Spanish movies director . Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón was born on January 2, 1942 in Torrelavega, Cantabria, where uses to set most of films , including Valley Pas and Picos De Europa . He is a writer and director, known for Habla, Mudita (1973), Camada Negra (1977) , Maravillas (1981) , Demonios en el Jardín (1982) , Feroz (1984) , Visionarios (2001) , Todos Estamos Invitados (2008) . He began working in cinema in 1973 when he filmed ¨Habla Mudita ¨ , this debut feature by acclaimed Spanish director deals with a strange relationship between a mature men and a mute villager . Manuel Gutierrez is a well recognized filmmaker both nationally and internationally, and in proof of it he won many prizes among which there are the following ones : David di Donatello Awards , Moscow International Film Festival , and San Sebastian International Festival award to ¨Demonios en Jardin¨ , Goya Awards 1987 to ¨La Mitad del Cielo¨ , Cinema Writers Circle Awards, Spain and Berlin Internation Festival 1996 to ¨Rey del Rio¨ , Biarritz International Festival awards and Goyas 2003 to ¨Caballero Don Quijote¨ , among others .
