Critical look over the years of the Spanish transition

" Con uñas y dientes " ( 1977 ), the second feature length movie of Paulino Viota, is a disillusioned and biting look over the years of Spanish democratic transition, narrated in a dry and scrawny style where director Paulino Viota shows the political intrigues, struggles and frustrated hopes of the first years of Spanish transition to democracy.

A brave, sharp and visceral film told in a concise way that sometimes remember the style of french director Robert Bresson and that was shot in very difficult economic conditions.

One of the key titles of the Spanish transition age and one of the firsts in showing without lacks the situation of that period.
