A conflicted but triumphant tale of feminine success in the World of Men
7 March 2002 | by (collegetown USA) – See all my reviews

A great film that challenges the identification of women with the domestic sphere. The protagonist's somber struggle involves breaking into the world of Franco's male dominated 70's - not directly after the Spanish Civil War-that was in the 30's. A touch of the surreal but the darker, more reserved Spanish style, not the colorful magical realism of Latin America.
