Scellent adaptation of the Delibes's novel by Ana Mariscal
20 February 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

It's a great adaptation of the novel by Miguel Delibes "El camino" 1950, set in the post-war period, in the village of Molledo (Iguña Valley, Cantabria). In the words of the novelist, who spent much time in this wonderful town of Cantabria inside ... "For me as a child was Molledo people worship and safe haven", "I spent the summer in Molledo Portolín (Cantabria) and Angeles, my girlfriend in Sedano (Burgos), a hundred Km. away ... So I thought of the bike as appropriate transport caused no other expense than my muscles. " "The generation of my grandfather was French. My grandfather, Federico Delibes, came to Spain to build the railway from Reinosa to Santander, and in a section near Molledo there is a very long tunnel (in the film there is an episode of the kids shitting in the tunnel while the train passes, that is to Molledo-Portolín). It is known to be distracted too long, and he met my grandmother, fell in love, had time to get married, and he never returned to France, because he was very comfortable here ... And here died. "

Movie written by José Zamit, assistant director of Ana Mariscal, music of Gerardo Gombau, novel Miguel Delibes, photography Javier Valentin, all under the control of Ana Mariscal, considered the best Spanish film director. It is an extraordinary work of adaptation to the novel Delibes, that was shot in the village of Candeleda (Avila).

Mariscal ordered an extraordinary cast of actors, which we highlight: the women of the village, led by "Doña Lola la Guindilla" (Julia Caba Alba), owner of the grocery store and package "La Purisima", sister of "Irene" ( Maruchi Fresno), who runs away with the banker, "Don Dimas" (Dominguez Adriano), "Leopolda" the telephone operator (Mary Isbert), this is the news that broadcasts all the people, with "El Cuco" (Xan das Bolas ) the guard of the train station, "Don Jose" the priest (Joaquin Roa). The teacher "Don Moisés" (José Orjas), whom "El Monigo" (Angel Díez), you want to roll with his sister "Sara" (Mari Paz Pondal).

It's a great film that reflects like nobody Delibes these simple thoughts about "life" and his favorite hobbies, which along with "Las Ratas" of Antonio Giménez-Rico, 1997," El disputado voto del Sr. Cayo", with the stage of post-war Spain also Antonio Giménez-Rico, 1986, and "Los Santos Inocentes" by Mario Camus, 1984, are excellent adaptations of novels by Delibes.

The reflective conversations of kids, "Tiñoso" and "Monigo": "... and after studying both the gentlemen of the city, a jay can not distinguish a goldfinch. The Confessions of "Doña Lola" with "Don José" Scenes from the movie theater of the village and the sign "Closed for shame" put by "Doña Lola" in her store, make unforgettable moment in this fantastic Mariscal's film.
