Still the best film of Galician movie history
29 February 2000 | by (Pofesional Ville) – See all my reviews

This movie is great. It's a very special flick: a drama about Galician migration to America in the 1940s, a touching and sometimes violent love triangle story, but with parts that are either very funny or delightfully magic, almost like a Galician version of the Magic Realism of Latin American literature, with a character, Caladiño, who's a sort of Doc Brown who doesn't get old (he LOOKS old, but doesn't change his look at all in about 40 years of story) and is obsessed with flying, popping up here and there through the sad plot of the film. If we think well about it, this film has almost an Emir Kusturica-like surreal flavour (while not as clear as in Kusturica).

Another great thing of the movie is its setting in a Galician village, which creates a unique atmosphere (helped by beautiful cinematography and music). The acting is pretty good, and an important part of the cast were stage players.
