Combining Bergman (the cubist merging of faces, the painful unpeeling of identity doublings) and Buñuel (the oneiric fusions in a domestic milieu), Saura delivers an astounding, Escher-like emotional plateau of conjugal and daughter-father relationships across themes of death and liberation. Superbly acted, its camerawork is as elegant as it can get delving momentarily into the very 'desert of the real'. Masterpiece!
