Intense drama about a a valiant mother who faces off drug barons , being based on actual events of the 80s
6 March 2015 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Nice film well shot in Galicia in northern Spain . In the seventies local Mafia carried out tobacco smuggling ; however this activity disappeared and in the eighties the old power has been overspread into drug trafficking . This story deals with a brave woman called Pilar (Adriana Ozores) and her friend Fina (Maria Bouzas) fight against the drug-dealers denouncing publicly who they were illicitly profiting themselves , in fact , by that time the benefits of illegal traffic were uncountable .

This is a thought-provoking denounce-drama with emotion , routine plot , family relationship and a little bit of suspense when the starring is threatened but also contains too much dialogue and many other things . It packs an uneven plot that relies heavily on the relationship among protagonist Adriana Ozores , his husband , Carlos Blanco , and her three sons , especially Fito , finely played by Javier Pereira . The picture gives a deserved tribute to all those brave people and especially mothers that challenged drug-dealers who dealt in drugs there in the 80's decade and putting their own existences in danger . The main problem has to face , beyond not being able to avoid falling into a little interesting intrigue , it is derived from the coldness of its staging , excessive dialog and some slow-moving scenes . Because the story needs a vibration more real than the one offered in this sometimes dull as well as sad flick , though also develops enjoyable moments as when the ¨Mother Coraje¨ and her friend Fina enter in prison and are happily greeted by the other inmates . Anyway, it's is compensated with an adequate cinematography by Alfredo Mayo including spotless pictorial images and a willingness , almost perfect of the elements of each shot , every sequence , every space . Shot on north of Spain, on location in Betanzos, Muros , A Coruña , Galicia, Spain . Furthermore ,an atmospheric and appropriate musical score by the notorious Lucio Gody , a prolific composer who has composed excellent soundtracks such as ¨Blackthorn¨, ¨All about my mother¨ , ¨Fin¨ , ¨Lunes Al Sol¨, ¨Amador¨, ¨Aura¨ and deemed to be one of the best Spanish musicians .

The motion picture was professionally directed , though without enthusiasm , by Gerardo Herrero . Gerardo is a famous producer as well as filmmaker . He was President of the Spanish Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (1994-1994) . Great producer of big hits , being especially known for The Secret of your ears (2009), Sin Retorno (2010) , Balada Triste de Trompeta (2010) , Crimenes De Oxford (2008) and El Hijo De La Novia (2001). He also directed some good films such as ¨Silencio En Nieve¨ , ¨Corredor Nocturno¨ , ¨Principio Arquímedes¨ , ¨Crimen Galindez¨ , ¨Frontera Sur¨, ¨Territorio Comanche¨ , ¨Desvio a Paraíso¨ , ¨Al Acecho¨ and this ¨Heroína¨ .
