Beautifully filmed loved story
30 June 2000 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

THE WINTER OF WOODNYMPHS combine Northern Spanish mythology (the woodnymph legend) with a heated story of forbidden love between the hot Elena Anaya and even hotter Eduardo Noriega. Elvira Minguez is perfect as the meddling sister, adding further obstacles to this love story. Set against the background of Spain's defeat in the Cuban War (a/k/a the Spanish American War), there are several interesting elements thrown into the main plot, which could very well stand on its own. For Noriega and Minguez fans, this movie is a must.
