a great poetic movie
18 October 2004 | by gabinete-alcaldiaSee all my reviews

Rafael Gil was one of greatest Spanish movie directors . His work includes "Huella de luz ", "La señora de Fatima ", "Don Quijote de la Mancha " and "Camarote de lujo " . "La calle sin sol " is a marvelous picture , a good combination of romance (Antonio Vilar and Amparo Rivelles ), suspense ( a murder case ) , poetry and realism .

The movie has roots in Marcel Carne ( poetic realism ) and King Vidor, and reveals the great skill of Rafael Gil behind the cameras .

Don't forget "La calle sin sol ", a truly masterpiece .
