Storyline

1944. In a Spain impoverished and almost annihilated by the Civil War, Manuela and Candela are two completely different sisters who live in a little town of the deep Galicia. Meanwhile Manuela just wanna live in peace and heal to her sick and little daughter Alba, her younger sister Candela steals little amounts of the wolfram (a mineral used in Second World War for tanks and fire weapons) she extracts in a mine to shell it in the black market, trying to get money. In addition, she helps Bryan, an English agent of British Intelligence living secretly in the town, in an attempt to close the mine used by the Nazis with General Franco's permission, to move all wolfram they can reunite to Germany, in order to expand their weaponry. Reluctant, Manuela collaborates with Candela to contact a former guerrilla called Miguel Peña to organize the mine workers (all them Franco's prisoners from the Civil War, condemned to penal servitude to avoid being executed) to cave a secret tunnel to steal ...

Trivia

The original screenplay was written in Galician, but the two female leads (Marian Álvarez, Manuela Vellés) didn't speak this language, so the script had to be adapted to Spanish. There are still a few Galician words and expressions, and both leads met with a dialect coach before filming. See more »

Very gripping drama that didn't know how to end
16 March 2016 | by cornesnaishSee all my reviews

I watched this film for the first time when I attended an event at my University. The film hadn't been released in cinemas yet, so we were one of the first to see it.

The opening sequences of the forest are amazing. They take your mind and point it towards Tarkovsky and Iñárritu. The forest is amazing and gives off magical vibes, and the color scheme really brings you in to the locations, with really warm firelight in closed spaces. The camera movements take a while to get used to - it's a bit nauseating at first, but it's a blast once you've grown comfortable with it.

Onto the story: it is very well written, fast paced, and gripping. But, as I said before, it doesn't know how to end. The last few minutes of the film might be interpreted as a metaphor, a cliché, or just an easy way to end it. But for me it took the credibility away. I'd love to watch the film with the last five minutes recut.

In summary, great acting on Marian Álvarez's part, prototypical musical score, very good story that falls short because of the ending, amazing photography and lighting, and many characters that are interesting to see develop.

Solid 8 out of 10.
