A really great film
14 November 2005 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best European 50s films. An impeccable haughty accomplishment,superlative actors, superb recreation,light and ambient.One of the titles distinguished from one of the best Spanish directors of all the times. The movie reflects faithfully the life in small mining village. There a young faithful priest was coming to the original beginning of the Christianity and free of the prejudices of the catholic church. His love the neighbor and delivery to the social justice was shocking with the stubborn disillusion from that always the miners have suffered. The great director Rafael Gil( "the Spanish Frank Capra"), unjustly forgotten, competed with this film with the big ones of his epoch, Mizoguchi; Fellini, Kurosawa, Rosellini. Nominated to the golden lion and winner of the lion of bronze.
