Actually the music is the link btw the 1920's and 2017
4 June 2017 | by jljimenezfernandezSee all my reviews

I have read some reviews complaining about the music. I actually think that the music is what links the series to our times. Many of the themes are still current; domestic violence, gender un-equality, gender stereotypes, etc. I truly enjoy the series, all a surprise for me. I am usually quite critical with productions coming out from my country. I find the acting extremely good, especially of the 3 veteran actors Concha Velasco, Simón Andreu and Kiti Mánver, the latter a recurrent in Almodóvar movies. I agree that it can be a bit over the top at times, but in general I love the characters the scrip and the photography. I hope more productions like this keep coming from Spain.
