Or a war story. about friendship, love, passion, errors becoming sins. remembering old songs and Garcia Lorca plays. the lead character - the village. and the feelings. and the silences. the only strange thing - the emotion who seems remaining far by the viewer against the premises. a film with traits of Old Greek tragedy. decent performances, familiar scenes, a not surprising end. and the story of an innocent man changing. short, a Spanish story. beautiful, tragic. but not always real convincing. Nuria Prims reminding so many other actresses and theirs characters. Marcel Borras traits - between young Picasso and Bunuel in a role interesting but in many parts preserving the status of sketch. and sure, Oriol Pla in a more than interesting character skin. and, maybe, that is all.
