Much better than the book
A young Antonio Banderas takes the lead in this adaptation of one of the dullest books i've ever had the misfortune to read. The story follows a Spanish priest who's preparing to deliver a Requiem Mass to pay tribute to a local youngster who was brutally murdered during the Civil War.

Surprisingly, the story lends itself much more satisfyingly to film than is does to literature, and Banderas gives a truly sympathetic performance which grips the viewer right up until the inevitably tragic ending.

Highly recommended. But don't bother with the novel.
