Audience Member Carlos Saura has been one of my favorite Directors for a long time. I was delighted to find this dvd in my public library. The film is based on real events in rural Spain, of two families/clans who have had quarrels between them escalate to violence, and even murder. Even after one family moves to another small town, the rival family still search them out in order to execute more violence against them. The film is so well done, I was totally absorbed in it. Cinematography is beautiful. Spanish guitar music is 'to die for.' Acting is very good. Very well done, and well thought film by a Cinematic Master. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member A family drama that never truly get off the ground. too bad because the cast is trying heard but the story isn't convincing enough. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Based on a true story of two families in Spanish village of Puerto Hurraco. Hatred is such a useless thing and waste of time - but some people devote their life to it. The film with a great atmposphere, dramatic scenes and tragic ending. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Study of madness in a small town.
