| Artistic Internation Film... Give it a try
To keep this post short, I will give you my first and last impression of the movie.

At first, I thought the movie was a little confusing...I could not figure out where the plot was gonna take me.(I refuse to read the plot summary unless I am totally puzzled and that happens rarely). I decided to wait it out and see if the movie would explain itself. I am really happy I did.

The movie turned out to have a wonderful script and subplots that kept the film's continuity. I really enjoyed the attention to details and the ending of the movie was very artistic (I really appreciate artistic films). I am really surprised that even though the film appears to be done with a low budget...it turned out to have beautiful scenes of the mountains, village life, and the beach!

The actors performed there lines well and I was really caught up in the spirit of the villagers against the guards. There were some acting parts that could have been better, but that is true of all movies(there is no perfect movie in my opinion, just a matter of taste) As a whole, I thought all the actors played their parts well especially Roberto Alvarez the priest and Maribel Verdu who play Manuela. The main actor Carmelo Gomez acted true to his part as the Portero, El (The GOALKEEPER).

A great international film. Give the movie a try, you might enjoy it.
