A beautiful, exciting and touching Mario Camus's film.
23 June 2016 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Among the latest films in Camus (90's) may be "El Color De Las Nubes" his best film.

The Spaniard filmmaker relies on dramatic stories and very human characters, it's one of those small films, which apparently do not address complex stories, but for their honesty warmly welcome the viewer, which like its protagonists is also in need of humanistic arguments and encouraging.

It is a remarkable and emotional, with a wealth of characters who constantly rescued exciting, beautiful and moving work to each other (the kids to Grandma, Grandpa Children, niece grandfather ...) and which has splendid performances of veterans Julia Gutiérrez Caba and Jose Maria Domenech.

The short film three stories, initially shown by parallel assembly, eventually coalesce, thus achieving an overview form that tries to reach consistent conclusions.

Although such a story could have been set anywhere Camus chooses a beautiful and peaceful rural setting as Cantabria, achieved through generous well photographed plans, the viewer and the characters, they feel awed by the beauty of the landscape, which becomes and an extension of the home With a script that initially develops independently arguments later go approximating to melt, including a thriller subplot own, are not the most important dialogues, but the constant suggestion of the needs of the characters, In conclusion it's a small film that containing sufficient merit and values desirable to make more than one viewing.
