Very touching
19 May 2004 | by (Vitoria, Spain) – See all my reviews

Gracia Querejeta is one of the finest Spanish directors nowadays, and "Hector", her fourth film, won't disappoint the viewer. As in her previous pictures, Querejeta portrays the problems of a family in which the father figure is missing.

The high point of the movie is the work of the excellent actors, from the leading ones (Nilo Mur is charming as the title role, and Adriana Ozores is as efficient as ever as his aunt) to the supporting players, specially Unax Ugalde and Joaquín Climent.

Although the storyline can be extremely predictable, the overall sensation the viewer can obtain is that it is a very nice, touching film.
