Rating: 8.46 (13 votes)
Directed: Carlos Saura
Country: Spain
Language: Spanish
Genre: Drama, Mystery, Thriller


After witnessing the death of each of her parents, Ana believes that she has a deeper understanding of the world than many of the adults in her life. As the boundaries between fantasy and reality collapse, she finds herself surrounded by ghosts of her family's past. Geraldine Chaplin assumes the dual role of Ana as an adult and her deceased mother and, along with Torrent, gives the film a powerful emotional resonance. Saura made the film at the time of Franco's death, and intended the film to be a meditation on the uncertain political future of mid-1970s Spain.
