  • ramosbarajas's rating of the film Sonatas

    Incredibly boring. The plot relies on previous knowledge of history, otherwise it ends up being the usual revolt-against-existing-power films that are very common. Not much to like here, not even Felix or Rabal or Rey. Figueroa's cinematography is good, as always. The one moment that could be worth it takes place halfway through the film where an exorcism takes place, but aside from that...
