Corruption, baseness and vileness at its best.
8 March 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Extremadura (Spain), 1912. "Don Pedro Luis Jarrapellejos" (Antonio Ferrandis) is the "Cacique" of "La Joya", the owner of life and property. He appoints or dismisses mayors and governors. He makes and breaks marriages. There is nothing you can not achieve except to "Isabel" (Aitana Sanchez-Gijon), beautiful and humble teenager who refuses. One day, "Isabel" and her mother are raped and murdered in their own home.

The performances are superb, credible, strong and well defined. The scenarios and the atmosphere, are also very well made, this film faithfully reflected the "Caciquismo" which was the distorted form of local government where a political leader has total control of a rural society expressed as a political patronage, and total corruption of the electoral period. However, this film goes further and highlights corruption, meanness and baseness of the people themselves.

Its director Antonio Giménez Rico on occasion described the story told with the adjective "outrageous" because the film is really very hard, but life is that it was at that time, so the realism and the cruelty of some scenes reaching impact on the viewer. The film from the point of view of history is essential because it is a true reflection of the country that left the nineteenth century and into the early twentieth century, and offers a personal view of the historical period of the Bourbon Restoration is the political stage developed under the monarchy which lasted from late 1874 when the pronouncement of General Arsenio Martínez Campos, ending the period of the First Spanish Republic, until April 14, 1931, when it is proclaimed the Second Spanish Republic.

The end of the film is memorable for the ending scenes. It is a highly recommended film,
