Storyline

Three women from three different generations and walks of life find themselves in a very hot, semi-deserted Spanish town. Patricia is a 17 year old roaming Spain in search for a certain man; Sol is 27, a door-to-door salesgirl in dire economic straits who has just been thrown out of her apartment; and Virginia is a middle aged housewife, who after 20 years decides to start a new life. These three spend a very unique 24 hour period together, often acting, as the title suggests, as modern day "witches." Written by Gonz30

24 hours with three generations of Spanish women
18 March 2000 | by gonz30See all my reviews

BRUJAS follows the lives of three very different women, who have are forced by "happenstance" to spend a whole day together in a ghost-town, apparently abandoned by its inhabitants due to the unbearable heat. This scenario affords the writer/director to explore the theme of generational differences (and similarities) between three good examples of Spanish women of the 90's. While the women all have their problems, they are hardly "witches," a term more likely meant to describe society's contempt for them, rather than a label to judge their plight and their strengths. BRUJAS stars the very hot and young Penelope Cruz, and Ana Alvarez, among a fine ensemble cast.
