In this complex drama, a drifter brings his new girlfriend home for a visit. The girl’s real flame is an escaped convict, who looks her up, but before she can leave with her lover, the drifter’s mother kills her. Even though the mother had an incestuous relationship with her son, the son is determined to kill his mother, believing that she killed his one true love. Grim and haunting, it is one of the best representations of the Spanish golden age of cinema. Spanish with English subtitles. Unrated. 82 mins. DVD.
