Spain, 1951


Nieves Conde’s best-known work, this portrait of postwar Madrid set the precedent for Spanish Neorealist filmmaking. While the Catholic Church considered the film “deeply dangerous,” the political wing labeled it of “national interest.”

  • Raquel's rating of the film Furrows

    I'm still confused about this one. It was probably one of the most rough old school spanish patriarchal shit I've ever seen, BUT simoultaneously it reeked some anti-capitalist messages, which I really appreciated. Uncomfortable and fascinating; still guessing how the dictatorship approved it.
