Carlos Saura brings back to life one of the darkest chapters of Spanish recent history. Jelousy, envy, fights for lands, and a bloody ending. "Underground" Spanish writer Ray Loriga surprises us all making a nice and sober script in which he tells us about what happened in the village of Puerto Urraco one summer of the early 90's. As usual, Saura has chosen a great cast. Maybe Juan Diego and José Luis Gfómez are not the youngest or the more handsome actors in the world, maybe they're not even the most popular, but they are just brilliant. Victoria Abril is in state of grace, and the way she built her character is just amazing. The Seventh day, the Sunday, hatred blew nine lives away, and Saura shows it as it was.
