Grace and dignity
21 August 2005 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This is not the best Spanish film ever made, or the one with the larger budget, but it was done with grace and dignity, getting the right mood before and after the General Franco years of dictatorship. Everybody act quite well, ¡but they sing even better! (Molina and Bandera). The music is great, if you like folk traditional Spanish music. This soundtrack is one of my favorites of that sort (as well the second one, although I did not see that movie). I became fan of the couple, specially Molina, who was one of the girls of Buñuel film "That obscure object of desire" (the other one was Carole Bouquet). An interesting point is the telling about how authorities and people though about homosexuality in those days. There are some coincidences with the life of Spanish singer Miguel de Molina, who after being incarcerated because of his homosexuality, went to live in exile to Argentina (he used to sing some of those songs too).
