silencio!.. silencio!.. and look for...
12 March 2000 | by (spain) – See all my reviews

A theater/film full of the obsessions of Garcia Lorca. The martial/marital order established into a female's family in the '900. Ana Belen is wonderful, and her mother... go to see her, but thinking you are at the early century... in Spain...
