Very good Olea movie with great performances
26 November 2014 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

When the Spanish political film begins to focus on the consequences of war, Olea and Azcona seek to present the Spanish society through a story prewar, and when you go looking for the sleaze and vulgarity of homosexual relations, director and screenwriter treated very delicately, without removing realism, homosexual relations. The Catalan bourgeoisie, the police, the church, and all powerful in the 20s exposed strata appear as a box of insects for observing the viewer. For an hour and a half, the viewer, it will draw conclusions and remembering what lived in Spain before and after the civil war.

Pedro Olea stood in a line of decency and seriousness fruit of which was this film that justified its ruggedness by a competent cinematic style and highly effective. The film is narrated with inspiration and also highlight the performances of Carmen Carbonell and Roberto Camardiel a very versatile character actor. Olea done this and some other good films in addition to his debut with a film like "Días de Viejo Color" which drew attention spontaneous and totally natural sensuality that offered their frames.

"Un Hombre Llamado Flor De Otoño" is a film piece made with care and you have the right emotional tone for each time.
