Errementari: The Blacksmith and the Devil is a re-telling of an ancient fable about a Blacksmith who finds himself battling the Devil. In this story the Blacksmith has captured a demon and lives a life of hermit-like seclusion away from the prying eyes of the townsfolk. All is going well until a desperate little girl, Usue, accidentally stumbles across the devil and unknowingly releases him. It is then left to the Blacksmith to reclaim his bounty, but this is easier said than done as he also finds himself at the end of a lynch mob that have come searching for the missing Usue.

Errementari: My first Basque movie
13 December 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Saying this is my first Basque movie probably lacks impact since there are so few of them, but if this is what to expect from them then sign me up for more.

Yet another Netflix original it tells the story of a reclusive blacksmith who imprisons the demon he deems responsible for much of his misery.

It is arguably a dark fairytale, it looks the part, it sounds the part and the cast are fantastic. I had no idea what to expect going in but am certainly happy that I ended up giving it a chance.

It's very hard to categorize Errementari as it has fantasy roots but plays out much like a horror. It's grim, it's dark, its pretty unforgiving yet it has its heart in the right place and doesn't lose atmosphere in favor of needless impact. It has themes with religion, sacrifice and loss, which makes it even more fascinating and relatable.

It had me gripped early, partially because there simply isn't enough of this type of movie out there. It's deep, it's rich and I really enjoyed it. Sure it's not without its flaws, but nothing can take away from it's originality and overwhelming charm.

Good job!

The Good:

Looks great

Truly stands out from everything else on Netflix

The Bad:

Certain things are ridiculous and unexplained

Should have been a tad longer

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Thin twigs don't make for the most intimidating weapons

Dolls are immortal and cannot be killed by mere decapitation
