This is a beautiful film, evocative of life in a rural Basque village, based on the book Obabakoak, by Bernardo Atxaga. It is a fine film, rich in symbolism.

The audience was quite involved and interested. This was in Bilbao, and the film was dubbed into Euskera (Basque) with no subtitles.

It's vitally important to do more films in threatened languages such as Euskera. Atanarjuat was made in Inuktitut, Hedd Wyn in Welsh. Both were a success both critically and popularly. Since Atxaga is the author who has put Basque literature on the map, his film should and could have been made in Basque.
