Beautiful, Sensitive, Stylish, Touching and Engaging, 29 March 2009
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

After the suicide of his wife Greta (Elsa Bodem) overseas, the sixty years old Tomás (Jordi Dauder) receives a tarot card and returns to his hometown in Spain. While driving, he recalls through flashbacks his adolescence in the 60's in a primitive and superstitious village in the countryside. While studying with his friends Carlos (David Arnaiz) and Vicente (Adrián Marín), they tell rumors about Moira (Natalia Millán), the lonely newcomer that lives in a house on the hill. In accordance with the beatas of the village, the gorgeous Moira would be a witch that had encounters with the devil during the night. They decide to snoop Moira, and Tomás (Juan José Ballesta) stumbles on a root, falls and faints. When he awakes, he is in Moira's bed, and the woman treated his ankle and washed his clothes. He returns to her house and has an affair with her, and becomes obsessed by Moira. His crush becomes obsession, which associated to his jealousy and the ignorance of the locals, leads Moira to a tragedy.

The underrated "Regreso a Moira" is one of the most beautiful, sensitive, stylish, touching and engaging movies that I have recently seen. The heartbreaking story is developed in a very slow pace disclosing a powerful drama of a man haunted by the remorse of his action in his adolescence. There is no horror in the story, only a psychological drama in the head of an elderly man and trigged after the suicide of his wife. The screenplay, the direction and the performances are awesome, and I was impressed with the beauty of the unknown (in Brazil) Natalia Millán. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Chamado do Passado" ("Call from the Past")
