Terrible movie
11 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Do not waste your time with this film. I saw it on an internet search, being cited as an award-winning film in Spain, I decided to take a chance on it. Bad idea. The story is utterly confused, full of metaphors and annoying music throughout the film. I was in doubt if I was not watching a Disney musical. The story cites a previous family conflict, which resulted in deaths, but there is no explanation of what actually occurred. Groom's mother makes several references to these deaths, but does not specify what happened. Another curious fact is that the characters has almost no names, which makes the understanding of history. The place where it was filmed even looks like a location in Spain. The characters appear amid the ruins in the desert. There's no way if you need that time the story goes. The desert environment seems to have been taken from the film Mad Max. One may wonder how a film like this could have been awarded in Europe.
