Many Spanish films seem to be set in a period of Spanish Civil War. Here a young girl is trapped between that world and a more normal one of natural relationships and their care. The fantasy element she is drawn into may represent her way of resolving the conflict, but that is not without its threat, and the two meet in a final unresolvable crash. It is a magnificent film, but not for the fainthearted. But then the best fairy stories have a dark undertow. It goes with 'The Tree of Guernica', and they could be watched side-by-side.
