The movie tells the story of a family of actors working in the towns of Spain during the 40’s and 50’s. Life gets very taugh for them since they cannot compete any longer with the cinema. We see the end of an era.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
There are several serious degrading scenes concerning women, and sometimes there's laughter over it. I can't (under)stand this macho normativity of my country. Loved the rural scenery, the faces, the pursuit of freedom in a rotten system... But, again, this was whased away completely by the machism, some bad performances and a wrong use of music.
