From the maker of the exceptional In a Glass Cage - from one work of art to another...
Complex, detailed, and explicit.
Villaronga is an artist - a brave director, he neither shies away from the given subject nor does he throw subtleties around in order to spare the audience some deeply disturbing moments.
This is a masterwork, a masterpiece.
Quite simply - brilliant - without peers.
Two boys (Ramallo and Manuel) and a girl in the Spanish Civil War are involved in the death of other two boys, one killed, the other suicided. This terrible secret will be with them for all their lives. Years pass and they meet in a hospital for tuberculosis treatment. She is now a nun, Ramallo is a thief and Manuel is obsessed by religion. Reality is too hard to feel, only the sea should be the best place, where all is quiet...
