Extraordinary portrait of the 60s of Spain by Josep Maria Forn.
24 May 2016 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

"La Piel Quemada" is among the best Spanish films, but was ignored at the time. It is a portrait of the sad reality that hundreds of thousands of Spaniards who had to escape the misery that was in many regions of the peninsula were driven...

Few films so faithfully reflect a time like this portrait of the 60s, in the boom of tourism development in the Mediterranean region, and more specifically in Catalonia. With very successful scenes knows to reflect such diverse aspects as the use of Catalan in those years, the treatment of the 'Charnego' rural life in deep Andalusia (Guadix is the hometown of the protagonists), with all its limitations or misery, social and labor; the tremendous contrast to life in the tourist area, where if freedom is achieved, at least get to graze, and where there are opportunities for those who seek them in one way or another....

Simple script and excellently developed, encompassing the struggling long family trip, crossing half of Spain, and to some suspense remains at the end of it with the arrival in Lloret del Mar. Even long scenes manage to convey a sense of ennui very appropriate.

The portrait of the Spain of the time managed by Josep Maria Forn and interpretation of Antoni Iranzo, are great.
