Balarrasa, a totally forgotten movie in its own country, Spain, shares lot of details with some epic movies from the 50's and 60's from Hollywood (I recall Ben Hur, Quo Vadis and Barabbas).

Balarrasa is the nickname of a militar guy who's living in the wild side. Suddenly he experiments in the war field an extraordinary experience and he decides to give his live to God. He becomes a priest.

Coming back to his hometown, he finds his family totally broken and living as he used to, that means in the edge of the blade. He starts a kind of crusade to save them.

A hidden pearl in Spain movie history... Look at your hands...
