second thought’s review published on Letterboxd:
Considered one of the best films of Spanish cinema.
I wasn't able to unriddle that. Maybe because history adds a thick layer to its greatness and I just had the faintest inkling of that matter.
They introduced us to every member of the family yet they have little to none interactions with each other which made me unhappy because I was really looking forward to that up until the end.
One of the monumental scenes for me was when Ana realized the truth when she assimilated the fictional Frankenstein story to the world she is currently living in.
And the landscape behind every shot, even a plain field, is just stunning enough for me.
