Perhaps, one of the best Spanish films ever
8 October 2008 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This film is so grim and haunting... It is one of the best representations of the Spanish golden age of cinema during the seventies. I can think of only a handful of films that achieved similar levels of craftsmanship and atmosphere: 'La Prima Angélica' (1974) and 'Cría Cuervos' (1976) by Saura are probably the finest examples.

'Furtivos' is a poetic metaphor of the dark times Spain lived during the dictatorship without being too political. The mother and the son, living isolated in the forest, are themselves the representation of the relationship between people and government at the time.

A must if you want to understand Spanish cinema and Spanish culture during those difficult times when Franco was dying (it was released two months before his death). It shows more than many other films without being too obvious, which is a relief if you don't like 'didactic' films.
