Marisol's best acting job in a passionate film.
15 May 2005 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Marisol excels in this underplayed slow moving drama about a school teacher who takes a job in a small border town school during the Spanish civil war.

She keeps in touch with her revolutionary lover who is hiding in the nearby mountains by sending a student as a messenger. The lover also underplayed beautifully by her then real life husband, flamenco prodigy Antonio Gades.

A film of passion and pain, so rare in Spanish cinema, is all the more significant by starring two stars of escapist entertainment who in real life were quite politically charged.

Had this been a box office hit, we may have been able to keep the multi- talented Marisol on the screen for a few more years.

This film and as well as CASO CERRADO are the antidote to Marisol's cheerful early Franco musicals.

!Pepa, por favor vuelve!
