Amazing film
23 August 2005 | by RPRSee all my reviews

This movie describes as anyone the soul of Asturias. The mine, the family, the friends, the land..... Quirós does an amazing job, Resines looks alike a perfect miner, as he has been asturian since ever, Adriana Ozores is gorgeous as usually and the music, in special the blowpipe sound by Berto Varillas, asturian blowpipe master, is incredible. In any case, Quirós is a director really less ranked. Maybe if he has godfathers like Amenabar he could has more films well known. The care he takes with the characters, his technical work, the photography... makes this director a really future genius. Really a excellent job of all the crew, with great results in Spain.
