Joaquim de Almeida,
A work of Valle-Inclán, the story takes place in Galicia in the early twentieth century. To escape poverty, the wife of a sacristan uses a hydrocephalic child as a sideshow attraction. This causes a confrontation with her sister-in-law.
A good portrait of political dificulties in Spain during King Charles III times
A very good portrait of Spain and its difficulties during the period of King Charles the Third, Major of Madrid, too. He was an exceptional Major and good king, but due to its Italian ascendency and his choice of an Italian Prime Minister, the people did not like its Govern.
The film is about Mr. Esquilache, the Prime Minister and tells us its troubles to maintain the peace due to its interest in getting a good government for the Spanish people.
Very good characterization, filmed in real places and excellent dresses. It maintains your attention from start to end.
