Yet another great Spanish movie.
It provokes you to engage in the storyline emotionally. The plot follows the pace of the events, which just overtake you.
Crucial and underestimated subjects are discussed (or not) as secrecy, sacrifice, devotion, sense of duty, decency. It was a rollercoaster of emotions and thoughts.
The amazing thing is, it embraces you to feel and think along the movie. You are allowed to create your own opinion, through your perspective, there are no boundaries, no villains or heroes. Just people following their intuition and feelings. The realism of it, contrasts the surrealism of the events, without the one overshadowing the other.
I didn't find it slow. Each character was allowed enough screentime to be understood completely.
I admired the metaphors, the symbolism, the use of tradition and its impact on peoples' insticts. That's what European cinematography is about.
Amazing movie. Investment of time.
