Not as good as I expected
7 February 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I saw this film last week at the IFFR. According to the description it should be a beautiful film about a little Spanish village which is about to disappear because all the young inhabitants have moved to more populated areas. Helas, the film was not as beautiful as I expected. the landscape in which the village lays is absolutely not spectacular, I even found it boring. The (only fourteen) old people who still live in the village are filmed in a disorganized way. And although there is some attention for new developments (windmills being built in the neighborhood and the transformation of a former castle into a luxurious hotel), these are only mentioned and no attention is been given to the consequences of these developments for the village. On top of this all the film lasts almost two hours, which is in my opinion at least half an hour to long for what is being told in it.
