Brad Newsome Sydney Morning Herald It's all quite entrancing, in a delightfully bonkers way. Oct 31, 2018 Full Review Guillem Martinez Oya Cinematismo A new formula to explain the basque mythology and a new visit to the concept of the bad and the good. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 3, 2021 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage Is visually very attractive. [Full review in Spanish] Apr 29, 2019 Full Review Kat Hughes THN Rather than hot pokers and knives, this duo use bells and chickpeas. That's right, this film is so good that it makes chickpeas scary! So much so that you may very well feel some sympathy for the devil. Rated: 4/5 Aug 23, 2018 Full Review Anton Bitel SciFiNow With fantastic set designs and beautifully sombre lighting, The Blacksmith And The Devil transforms nineteenth-century northern Spain into a space all at once mythic and medieval... Mar 9, 2018 Full Review Alberto Bermejo El Mundo (Spain) A meritorious production, surely more skillful than plenty of media, does not know whether or not to take itself seriously.

Kolby A One of my favorite movies of all time. This is a magical movie with a little bit of everything for everyone. Such enchanting atmosphere and a world where a mirror is held up to humanity and humanity is forced to have a look and make a decision. Gorgeous picture. 😎 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/26/24 Full Review ewan m Atmospheric, Brilliant plot and surprisingly funny as well as wholesome in all the good ways . Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/07/23 Full Review T T Very cool folk tale from the Basque region in Spain taking place in the 1830's. This is a folk tale, so it's not meant for gore or cheap jump scares and meaningless horror. Enjoy this mythical and entertaining story. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/07/23 Full Review Wolfgang G Errementari, auch bekannt als „Der Schmied und der Teufel" , ist ein Fantasy - Horrorfilm in baskischer Sprache, der von Paul Urkijo Alijo inszeniert und von Alijo und Asier Guerricaechebarría geschrieben wurde. Die Geschichte basiert auf der gleichnamigen baskischen Legende, die von Pater Joxemiel Barandiaran gesammelt wurde… . Ja Errementari ist buchstäblich ein märchenhafter Film, ja im allen. Paul Urkijo Alijo hat ihn mit guten Schausielern fantastisch inszeniert. Voll mit herrlichen Bildern, ein lob für die Ausstattung, Kostümen, Masken… und mit der unterstützenden Musik von Pascal Gaigne. Errementari ist ein sehenswerter Film, der uns eitauchen lässt in die Welt von Legenden und Märchen. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/05/22 Full Review jwcdood WOW...what an imaginative sleeper (Netflix actually managed to strike it rich with this one)...! ERREMENTARI: THE BLACKSMITH AND THE DEVIL is a simple, but fantastic, story/screenplay with excellent casting, direction, acting, photography and production from Spain...!!! Uma Bracaglia as the little girl, Usue, and Eneko Sagardoy Mujika as the demon, Sartael, are completely captivating. Some categorize this as horror, but it's practically a fantasy/fairytale that's loads of fun to watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/24/22 Full Review Hells B As someone who can't keep their attention long on most movies I have to say the Basque language was beautiful to listen to while reading the subtitles to a great story. I thought the costumes were pretty great for what they were. To me, it's a classic I will repeat watch on occasion. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/19/22 Full Review Read all reviews
