Sean Baker’s review published on Letterboxd:
This review may contain spoilers.
Juan Antonio Bardem directs with a knack for beautiful, widescreen compositions, fluid and motivated camera moves and effective tension building. He's Javier's uncle by the way.
I can watch Marisol (Josefa Flores González) horseback riding, sunbathing, bike riding, car washing in a bikini, etc etc... all day. And she's truly great in this. As are Jean Seberg and Barry Stokes.
From IMDB trivia: Two totally different endings were edited out of the same footage: a happy one, for the Spanish market, where the two heroins get away with murder, and an moral one, for the International market, where the dead young man and his belongings are found because of peas ironically growing out of the road.
Both endings are on the disc. The Spanish one is totally superior.
