Storyline

Blanca, the director of the Municipal Library of a Spanish provincial city, receives a letter from Antonio Gómez, a partner she does not remember, in which he confesses his passionate love, alluding to the relationship between his secret feelings and the terrible crime that he just committed in a tavern shooting, in cold blood, on four customers who drank quietly at the bar. The whole city talks about the murder and, although the murderer is unaccounted for, Blanca has the feeling that he appears in her reveries. Written by jsanchez

Original, but it lacks something...
9 April 2009 | by MRBICKLESee all my reviews

This is a movie like many others from a filmmaker who wants to innovate, but stays in the middle of the path. During the Franco years there was in Spain a very conventional and unoriginal cinema, so films like this one are to be praised because they were a bit of fresh air and new stuff like the french did with their Nouvelle Vague.

The problem begins when we focus in the film itself, a confusing love story about obsession (a man who kills because of the despair he feels because he loves a woman), with some kind of forced poetry on it and that frankly, gets boring sometimes. You can feel that this and other movies of the time were just experiments, not products completely finished and developed and from directors who were just beginning their careers. And as such, experiments, they must be seen; but sadly the flaws in both plot and direction are too much to consider it more than just correct. At least we have José Luis López Vázquez, that proves here how great he is as an actor.
