Review

Our Score
Director Carlos Saura has fashioned a pitiless and scathing assault on a society and the attitudes that shaped it. His contempt scorches into the celluloid like the heat in which a trio of Civil War veterans go rabbit shooting on the arid site of a former battlefield. Equal scorn is poured on aristocratic and nouveau riche sensibilities, as a combination of vanity, snobbery, fiscal envy and politico-sexual repression drive the unrepentant Falangists to acts of savagery that leave their young companion rigid with indolent incomprehension. Deservedly, Saura's impeccable control of performance, pace and atmosphere earned him the best director prize at Berlin.
