dramatic movie
14 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent performance and very classic. A very interesting movie concerning the life of Spain's Queen JUANA LA LOCA. A wonderful way to show this true document in a dramatic way for a film. Aurora Bautista did a powerful interpretation of the mad queen. I give it a 10. The scenery is perfect and the castles are a perfect way to show the life style of those days along with the clothing, social activities, the way social life and mentality of those days. The direction couldn't be better. The cast was very intelligent chosen and they all did a wonderful interpretation. In a way, it teaches a lot of SPAIN and the most attractive thing was their perfect diction and language employed in their characters.
