Mariano Barroso, a reliable film-maker

The main character in "Hormigas en la Boca" leaves Spain in the late 50s, when Franco's dictatorship was in all its glory, and moves to Cuba months before that Castro's revolution triumphs... Well, that doesn't seem like a good idea, but I guess if you're a freedom fighter you'll have troubles wherever you go. But this man has iron ideals and he's chasing something even more powerful than that: blind love.

Mariano Barroso demonstrates once again that he's a reliable film-maker, brilliant and serious (that ain't easy to find in the Spanish scene). He brings us a nice story and a nice cast (I specially like Eduard Fernández, he's probably the best Spanish actor of his generation).

*My rate: 7/10
