Storyline

The young but travelled Ana arrives in a manor in the countryside of Spain to work as nanny of three girls and finds a dysfunctional family: the matriarch is a sick old woman obsessed by death and having constant nervous breakdowns; her son José was raised dressing in girl's clothes until his First Communion and is obsessed by military clothes and paraphernalia; Juan, the father of the three girls, a pervert since his childhood, writes pornographic letters to Ana; his wife, Luchy, has suicidal tendencies; and the mystic and religious eremite Fernando, who was inflicted to flagellation in his childhood, lives as a recluse in a cave. The presence of Ana disturbs the three brothers with tragic consequences. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Once more Carlos Saura and his symbolism !!!
5 July 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

That's stay clear that Carlos Saura's picture is hard subject to savour, he puts several symbolism to attack Franco's dictatorship, sounds weird to some tastes, the beginning is slow pace, sometimes really boring, many excess on some sequences, a typical art movie, the most interesting characters are the old brother with his odd collection of the military uniform and the young brother that opt to living in a cave praying in full abstinence of food or sex, all others waive any additional comments, an overlong picture that bother me mostly, the final scene is incredible subjective and highly violent, anyway and nasty experience at first look, wasn't allow to all tastes indeed, still, totally restored Saura's Box-Set containing six pictures with original audio !!!

Resume:

First watch: 2019 / How many: 1 / Source: DVD / Rating: 7
