Perhaps my ignorance of Spanish cinema should disqualify me from commenting, but I was very touched by this film. As our Spanish reviewer has commented, the cinematography and the music were notable. For me the story, the acting, and the themes were captivating. If Spanish cinema gets better than this, I don't know if I can bear it. I also find the sound of European Spanish very appealing, but there's my naiveté again, alas. What is it that familiarity breeds? (Now must I really find more to say? How silly that our hosts would require us to look for further commentary. Five or six lines should be plenty. Please forgive me...)
