User Reviews

Hyper-realistic version of the famous Cela novel
7 September 1999 | by doordSee all my reviews

These comments will reveal a few plot points that are essential to the film, but believe you me, a potential viewer might be interested in these before seeing the film. The screening I attended lost about 200 of its audience during the course of the movie. If you would rather be surprised, please read no further. The movie, to a fault, is extremely faithful to the action of the novel. During the course of the movie, of course, the psychological walls begin to close in on Pascual Duarte, and he becomes more and more demented until he finally cracks. In the course of this downward spiral, be warned...he blows away his dog on camera with a shotgun (no special effect here, it's real), and later on savagely stabs his horse to death (this is also a real event). This realism was enough to completely turn off many of the people in the theatre. Still, it is an extremely fascinating film.
