Several references place the movie in the late 19th century and one reference places it in 1830. It is unlikely that there would be electric light bulbs hanging from the ceilings in a remote village in the Pyrenees in the late 19th century and certainly not in 1830. See more »

A Work of True Genius
10 July 2018 | by pdrabzzSee all my reviews

There is very little I can add to the already glowing testimonials of those who have written before me, save to say that this visually stunning and masterfully enacted film is a rare masterpiece. The beauty of the setting and the reams of unspoken dialogue make this film truly unique. Please don't overlook this film, give yourself a treat and watch something of a quality you may never see again.
