Critics reviews

Fuego en Castilla isn’t only Val del Omar’s most well regarded work; it’s also his most important and the one that he was building up to throughout his entire career. It also won a prize at Cannes that year for its use of visual effects, as it truly transpires of something unique, as if he had seen the future and seen what the visual mindfucks consisted of in the 2010s and had anticipated them in the form of lights, shadows and screechy sounds on top of statues in the museum of Castilla.
