A sense of history
2 April 2008 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Beyond the criminal and social anecdote, "El Libro Talonario" reflects an almost lost way of life: the "mayeto" as a man next to nature, which fights for his family sustenance in a land of bully rogues and corrupt landowners.

Good production values and a clever focus on social issues makes this short-film an enjoyable piece of history. With his adaptation of an original short story by andalusian writer Pedro Antonio de Alarcón, newcomer Merat give us a remarkable first approach for new viewers to the same old Spanish country realm that attracted Hemingway and Welles, among others.

A very promising beginning for director and screenwriter Gonzalo Merat, in an unusual Spanish production, with a classic appeal and a modern approach.
