CGiii Comment

An utter joy - perfection.

All directors who are about to embark on making a film of this ilk, please, watch this before...and then, you might make something that might be worthwhile.


The(ir) Blurb...

In the early 60s, two boys - Ignacio and Enrique - discover love, movies and fear in a Christian school. Father Manolo, the school principal and Literature teacher, both witnesses and takes part in these discoveries. The three characters come against one another twice again, in the late 70s and in 1980. These meetings are set to change the life and death of some of them.
