Clebras and Rgfraiz should probably stick to blood and gore Hollywood made crap and the ever overrated Tarantino. This is a beautiful movie which speaks many idioms and yet no particular language because you have to decipher it yourself and it relies on one's own experience of life, love, desire, valid or repressed and forbidden to associate with this movie and its author. And with the book in particular. Every single choice whether it be the location(the DRY WHITE desert) to the houses which look more like ruins to the underlying stories. There is more than just a blood feud between them and the story with La Novia's mother which none of the above have understood and the reluctance of Le Novio's mother for her son to marry this particular woman......etc. There is just an immensity of codes and ciphers that need to be heard, seen and understood to appreciate this film,i.e CULTURE. Which to my despair seems to be more and more lacking nowadays. Better watched and understood in Spanish, including the dialectic words used. Or read the book before watching the film. Agree, not for everyone. But good movie. And Inma Cuesta is so good.
