Forgive me father(?) for you have sinned
31 October 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Now I would not call the movie surprising in any way or especially grand. It still is able to entertain the viewer with 4 powerful main characters in the mix who are all looking for their father. This may not be the most interesting premise for some, but it is what we are dealt with here.

And it works to a degree (foreseeable events and all), if you allow yourself to be intrigued by it all. Now I understand that for some this seems annoying and boring. That is fair, but it should never make you question the actresses involved and even more so spanish cinema overall. This tells you what it is, so you are never cheated in anything
