The expressive power of the director Manuel Mur Oti
4 August 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This film passes in a village in the Spanish region of "La Mancha", where a woman "Aurelia" (Aurora Bautista) works her lands with the help of a young stranger (Jose Suarez) that has just come to the village. The husband of "Aurelia" (Carlos Lemos) is in prison for a crime committed by an attack of jealousy. All goes well until the man regains freedom and the ghosts lurking his soul returning with him.

Adaptation of the work of theater homonym of Jose Suarez Carreño winner of "Lope de Vega" theater in 1951, where he shows us a Castilla as dry and hard as its inhabitants, men and women. This film is one of the best examples on the "España Negra" and moral values more hard in the post Spanish civil war, probably will not find an occasion more conducive to this Strong and castellana tragedy signed by Manuel Mur Oti in 1953

In continued with the film "Cielo Negro", premiered only a year earlier, "Condenados" tells another story focused on a character female "Aurelia" in a continuous slaughter, which appears as a cause and consequence and that this fits clearly in the patriarchal culture of those years. Equipped appreciated the religiosity of these films in scenes such as the harvesters in the Church, and the exaltation of marriage of the players.

The character of"Aurelia" is interpreted by Aurora Bautista, at the peak of his career after acting in films as "Agustina de Aragon", "Pequeñeces" or "Locura de amor," making a performance excellent. And he was not left behind his partner taxiway and husband in the film Carlos Lemos to get a very good with extraordinary levels. . As a curiosity highlight that is filmed in the village of Camuñas (Toledo).

It is an extraordinary film of Manuel Mur Oti , one of the directors that best printing force narrative in his films.
