Superb adaptation of the poem of Antonio Machado, by director A. Ruiz Castillo
13 July 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

In a small town in the "Sierra de Urbión", brothers "Juan" and "Martin", motivated by greed and abetted by "Candelas," (Martin"s wife)," kill their father and sink the body in the Laguna Negra. His wife and another daughter of the victim do not know anything. In the village you are missing. However, from now weigh a curse on the land for which they have committed the crime, predicting disasters each year and crop failures.

Directed by Arturo Ruiz Castillo, this film is a film adaptation of a poem by Antonio Machado, "La tierra de Alvargonzález" included in what is considered his best work, "Campos de Castilla" (dazzling, overwhelming and accurate description of the people and the arid landscapes of Castilla).

Great film, through the careful dissection of the characters and their motivations, accompanied by the magnificent portraits of the outdoors, where the black lagoon shows menacing, conveying concern in his remarkable black and white photography, A. Ruiz Castillo using a mixture of expressionism and neo-realism, makes a good picture of Castile and its people, how well we described Antonio Machado, and which stands out among a large cast of great actors, a splendid Tomas Blanco, in the character of son overwhelmed by the weight of guilt.

It is a highly recommended film.
