Our take

Twisting surrealism and striking humor together in the manner of Luis Buñuel, Destello bravío is one of today’s most entrancing Spanish debuts. As older women’s desires are lit up by nonprofessional performances, so the stagnancy of provincial Spain is refracted to sensually weird, wonderful ends.
