It's a must

After having had the chance to see "El hombre de las mariposas" at the Malaga Film Festival I just can say that every little single thing in this film makes well worth a trip to the cinema. The director, Maxi Valero has created pure poetry in motion with scarce dialogue but massive and meaningful silences. There is no insignificant capture or frame in this film.Excellent photography and wonderful soundtrack which wraps the story with an accurate and emotional atmosphere.What to say about the cast?The severity with which Lluis Soler plays Sergey,the mastery displayed by Ana Milán to convey the internal fight her role is going through or the way young Claudia Silva lights the screen are just impressive.
