Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Excellent film - 5 star feedback from all

Most people enjoyed this film, an unusual one for us with subtitles as there was very little dialogue in English and no known actors. Perhaps we can afford to be a bit more adventurous in future! Anthea was beautifully portrayed.

Engaging tale of a contemporary Spanish family trying to survive in the modern world and the trauma that causes the patriarch of the family. Emotional and heart warming. Spanish language with subtitles.
