This film offers a thriller in rather bad taste, not to mention style. Despite excellent photography of the countryside in Euskadi and Navarra, a worthy performance by Maru Valdivieso, as well as the appearance of Andoni Erburu, the film derails through bad treatment, mostly due to the director trying to do something more than he is capable of. Bordering on clumsy `macho' acting by the supposed criminals whose dialogues mainly could not get beyond uncouth language, to say the least, the story, what there is of it, unravels the same way as a cat would unravel a skein of wool. Indeed, there are serious incoherencies and inconsistencies, such that you either lose where the yarn is going or have forgotten about it anyway.
A sort of sham American "B" movie and poorly made.
Sponsored and patronised by various autonomous regional governments in Spain, but undoubtedly of Basque inspiration, `Clara' is one of those films which exist due to subsidies handed out, similarly to what numerous `Arts Councils' in various countries do, so as to bring forth a lot of films which should never have been made, let alone shown to the public - in this case TV audiences.
`Clara' is one of them.
