An unusual melodrama
13 July 2013 | by posadasabelademarSee all my reviews

Vicious people under Franco's regime are part of a singular parade in this Spanish film. Cruelty is the word to define actions against a naive young woman who can be hopeless anxious searching for a marrying candidate. The final travelling -around three hundred meters of Emilia running under the rain- is a long shot very well resisted by actress Susana Canales. Trouble with the censorship is that everything, including what the actress is giving the audience, indicates a tragic end. However,at the last minute, the bells of churches explode in the soundtrack and Emilia decides to shelter in one of them. Despite this unexpected and phony end,the movie deserves to be seen
