Storyline

Juan flees Madrid and an incestuous relationship with his sister, Ana, working at a mine on the Andalucian coast. When his friendship with Rosario, a local shop girl, becomes romance, Ana shows up wanting to rekindle their affair. He resists at first, but she stays, asserting that Juan is the only man she can ever love. Juan distances himself from Rosario. The mine has problems: high cancer rates in the area caused by poorly stored radioactive waste. A foreign safety engineer, Petersen, tries to connect with Ana, is rebuffed, but lets her stay in his sea-front bungalow. Juan seeks her out to demand she leave, only to argue with Petersen. Death, desire, and longing play out. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An unusual kind of love
31 October 1998 | by (Elizabeth R. S.) – See all my reviews

Ana(Emma suarez) strongly performing a madly in love sister about her brother Juan(Antomnio Banderas), goes to Andaluzia in order to find him and probably goes on with that old incestuous liaison. Juan, in spite of being madly in love about Ana too, tries so hard to avoid himself from her. Will he be able to?
