Looking back without the rose colored glasses, 24 June 2008
Author: aharmas from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Spanish cinema has a different way to look at relationships; they pretty much slap you on the face with their approach. There is very little time to mop around and wonder what it could have been. Results are expected and reactions are provoked,usually with the delivery of an insult, strategically placed. Not to say that feelings are not taken into consideration, Spanish realism just has no time to waste in extended expositions or extra dialog. What we find in this film is many pitch perfect with every possible stereotype we can find in any family dramas, but each has been given an extra dash of color in order to highlight his or her faults.

As friends gather to honor the last request of one of their childhood group, we slowly learn that this is no ordinary town. Soon the protagonist learns how the rest of town feels about his sudden departure 10 years ago, and how they believe the death of Suso might be in more than one way related to his reckless past. There is plenty of resentment going around, and it is hard to dodge the bullets. In fact, changes happen when he allows his emotional core to be bruised.

"Suso's Tower" is a small film with plenty of aspirations. It succeeds in presenting an interesting slice of life in a very touching manner. The cast is more than adequate, with a simple Celtic-tinged score, and crystal clear depictions of the lovely countryside.
