Synopsis:
Anselmo (Miguel Martín), a middle age shepherd, lives a poor but happy life in a small run down house in a middle of the Spain plains, near a small, but growing village. His dog Pillo and his sheep are his only company. A life bucolic enough for him to ignore the offers he receives from a construction company who wants to buy his house and land to build a new residential complex. Conflicting against Anselmo's unwillingness to sell is Julian and Paco's greed, the owners of the neighbouring lands, who only answer to their own interests.
A bloody metaphor of the greed to corrodes these who do not answer to reason in their quest to get what they want, and the inevitable, but violent consequences of their actions.

great lead performance - The Shepherd review by dl

Spoiler Alert
01/03/2018

really liked the look of this film. the lead actor was very good a subtle,heft performance whenever on the screen alone he was very

watchable but deeply let down by the other actors one of which was almost comedic in his exaggerated facial expressions.

i had to stop the film as the other performances where so bad.

great shame

Melodrama that should have been tragedy! - The Shepherd review by TE

Spoiler Alert
15/03/2018

This is a good film in terms of landscape, storyline and (as commented on by another reviewer) the excellent performance of the lead actor.

Unfortunately the narrative is heated up too quickly and the events become unrealistic.

It ends up being a mix of slow-burn and fast pace, with nothing in between.

Well worth watching but it could have been much more.
