Storyline

Juan is the handsome, irresponsible, best-loved second son. When his older brother, who runs the family's black-market business with their steel-willed mother, marries Juan's lover Ana, Juan heads for Madrid to work for Franco. Juan also leaves behind his impoverished cousin, Ángela, pregnant with his son. Jump ten years. Juanito, the lad, has rheumatic fever. The doctor says to pamper the boy. Ángela, Ana, and his grandmother comply. As Juanito recovers, his father returns in desperate need of cash; Juanito witnesses a theft blamed on his innocent mother. Things come to a head at a saint's-name party for father and son. Jealousies, betrayals, and a bullet converge. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

dreadfully dull
18 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

This film is, for the most part, melodramatic and uninteresting; the characters didn't interest me; the few scenes that might have been good suffered from (I'm assuming) such a constricted budget that the closeups that would have been necessary to give the scenes weight were not filmed. And usually the number of closeups in a movie is not anything that you think of, except that here there's such a conspicuous lack of them that instead of watching the movie you start wondering exactly _how_ small the budget was.

Long takes from one angle are not always a problem; both Ingmar Bergman and Abbas Kiarostami use them to great effect. But for my money, this film ended up looking like a documentary of something possibly not worth documenting.
