The beach of the greyhounds
9 October 2004 | by (Gijón, Asturies, Spain) – See all my reviews

A greyhound is a thin dog with long legs that can run very fast, often in races. But when a greyhound is getting older its destiny it'll be to die hanged because it'll has no use in racing.

This is a metaphor that director Mario Camus uses to tell us about violence and those who use it for a cause, in this case terrorists of Basque separatists E.T.A. and the army in Argentina during the dictatorship of General Videla.

In fact the movie is beautifully shot, specially that traveling when twelve old greyhounds come running through a beach towards the sea in slow motion...but one could say that one is the only moment that worths in the movie.

Two hours and a quarter is too much for this plot and it becomes very very slow and its interesting premise decays whilst the movie goes through.

It's a story about terrorism and violence, about betrayal and loyalty, about love and death..... but in my modest opinion it doesn't worth it.
