'Tiovivo c. 1950', José Luis Garci's new film, is a complex story. It has more than 60 actors and all of them perform important roles. They embody those people who had to face the difficult times Spain was living in the middle of the Twentieth Century, after the Spanish Civil War.
In my opinion, the best interpretations belong to Ana Fernández, Elsa Pataky and Andrea Tenuda. My favorite one is Miss Fernández's, since she develops an excellent role in four and a half minutes only.
The technical aspects of this film are good, but its score is almost inexistent. Although 'Tiovivo c. 1950' has a runtime of two and a half hours, it is not a boring production.
In short, Garci's new film is better than other of his former projects, but it is not a masterpiece.
