Good book, average movie
7 April 2004 | by (A Coruña) – See all my reviews

Based on the Manuel Rivas novel of the same title, Antón Reixa directed and produced his first cinema-film, after his experiences as a TV-serie producer and writer. And in no way he could reach the level of charm and fantasy that novel gets.

As a Galician living out of my land I enjoyed very much seeing all different Galician's scenarios and actors collected within the film. Though one can admit this movie is not a Masterpiece, mainly because it tries to follow the fantasy book style and it fails in getting it.

It is remarkable performances of Manuel de Lira, María Pujalte and Gonzalo Uriarte. On another note, Luís Tosar, the most awarded actor of the year in Spain works also well, though he could not show the whole richness of the character he has to perform.
