Review
In the impoverished mountainous Las Hurdes region of Spain the locals are desperate for income to keep their villages alive and hope that the chance discovery of a cave might provide the lottery ticket to a tourist industry. Two professional cavers arrive, one with girlfriend in tow, and this sets off a series of events, including rape and murder, that embroil several of the characters that we have met. Life is absurd and events can be random in a world where we all wear self-serving blinkers. An interesting debut movie; four or five stars, why not make up your own mind?
