Storyline

Juan flees Madrid and an incestuous relationship with his sister, Ana, working at a mine on the Andalucian coast. When his friendship with Rosario, a local shop girl, becomes romance, Ana shows up wanting to rekindle their affair. He resists at first, but she stays, asserting that Juan is the only man she can ever love. Juan distances himself from Rosario. The mine has problems: high cancer rates in the area caused by poorly stored radioactive waste. A foreign safety engineer, Petersen, tries to connect with Ana, is rebuffed, but lets her stay in his sea-front bungalow. Juan seeks her out to demand she leave, only to argue with Petersen. Death, desire, and longing play out. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

a strong and uncommon kind of love
28 October 1998 | by Bethy-3See all my reviews

Ana(Emma Suarez) goes to Andaluzia in order to meet her beloved brother Juan(Antonio Banderas). In spite of trying so hard to avoid Ana, They retake the old paxion. Of course this relation won't last forever. Good example of Spanish movie. Strong performance of Emma Suarez. The film is full of psycholgical details, that only Freud could explain.
