There is something very important to say. This movie was never released in Argentina. It was part of a cycle about New Spanish Movie far away and long ago. It is a pity because after so many years the images in black and white of that odd summer spent by Ramiro and Tula remained in your mind and it doesn't faint. The film is based upon Miguel de Unamuno's novel but director Miguel Picazo and actress Aurora Bautista -in the best performance a Spanish actress was ever given- try a new meaning for the literary text. And the repression, the wrong conception of life, the false pride and the prejudices of a woman turn a man into a tragic figure. It is not Tula the one the spectator pities. It is Ramiro -a good performance by Argentinian Carlos Estrada-. One of the Spanish movies of all time. abel posadas
