Ricardo Franco attempted to film one of the best Spanish novels of the twentieth century.
3 September 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

"Pascual Duarte", farmer in a desolate Extremadura, a day of tremendous heat killed his hunting companion dog. Later killed the mule kicked his wife to death. And time went on and killed his mother. And finally, when the whole country was in a field dominated by grim death, killed the owner of the land he had trodden since childhood. "Pascual Duarte" was executed in the "garrotte vil" ...

The film "Pascual Duarte" does not reflect one of the best works of literature that has given Spain in the twentieth century. Ricardo Franco he failed to grasp at all, the essence of the book, and we can perceive in the title.

Cela called his novel "La familia de Pascual Duarte," not by chance. Throughout the text we are witnessing a detailed analysis of conditioning the character of its surroundings, we see how their social, cultural and family make it the person who will be more. The book speaks of determinism, lack of free will that has the character of "Easter" to build a decent and honest life. And the label of "family" refers to the framework in which life unfolds "Pascual". Only through analysis of context we can understand why the actions of the protagonist, the causes that lead him to commit such despicable acts.

"Pascual" is a reserved character, who hates loneliness and suffering will end, however, thanks to his skills as a psychopath. All this with the environment of rural profound Spain early twentieth century, very well portrayed in the film, Ricardo Franco forgot "The Family" and thought it was enough to tell the life of "Pascual" without regard to the context that surrounded her. He did not realize the critical importance of the environment in the further development of their actions and crimes. In the film we see a story that seems empty, a character who acts without apparent reason, no motivation, and no sense.

Nevertheless, it is a film of shocking scenes and depictions of historical interesting to see where the scenery and the long silences that put the viewer in the rural world of the early twentieth century when life was really tough with many people.
