Such a fine sense of humor and at the same time an intimate sad view of the deep feelings the disappearance of a small village produces in us. The quality of the filming done in video recording due to low budget cannot show in its full extent the beauty of the emptiness. The non-actors are the villagers themselves, none of them younger than sixty and with a magnificent sense of life and charm besides the situation. No one could have gone deeper in their feelings and transmit such a peaceful sensation at the end. First feature film of a promising Spanish female director who happens to have been born in the village where the film is shot
