Surprising and serious Camus film with category and style.
12 June 2016 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This is one of the films that best defines the style of Mario Camus: Exaltation of the bucolic, simple characters, predilection for landscapes of Cantabria, aesthetic and very careful photography and light plot and no clear objective. These ingredients and enjoy in "El Color De Las Nubes" and other films of Camus, who makes clear his taste for cinema without fanfare.

It is a film without a story to tell and accurate without a defined main plot. There are several characters, and each carries its own subplot; the cyclist boy, the old woman who dies and leaves a coveted heritage, the manager of the rider and old friend (played by Alvaro de Luna), the girl working in the asylum and sister of cyclist etc. However, none of them seem to have enough strength to give the category of the main character.

Its script is the love, the desire for work, sport, old age, the generosity of those lovers of cycling, the formation of the young (the importance given to the studies), interest ...

The characters remain in the general tone of the film; very simple, with little psychological depth and with little force. It seems that all remain unchanged in a state, something that contributes parsimonious narrative rhythm.

In short, it is a small, extremely simple but with an undeniable plastic beauty and an undeniable charm work. I recommend viewing.
