Tradition in rural Spain; the easy or the hard way to live.
Montxo Armendariz became popular with this film which captivates the essence of rural Navarra (region of Northern Spain, next to the French border) during the fascist regime of Francisco Franco. Standing from the point of view of a growing boy (Tasio), he will take the audience with him along his entire life, becoming the spectator the first witness as if they were themselves Tasio. His childhood, his friends, his games, his way of life in a very small village, and how he struggles to live always in that particular village, is what this movie show us. The priest, his parents, his first and last girlfriend who will become his wife, and mother of his son, the police, the musicians, all characters come and go in front of him. If anybody had ever wondered how was to live in the countryside and work with just your hands and a rifle, Tasio is the movie.
