A sensitive 1973 mood piece by Victor Erice centered on small children in a Spanish village in the 1930s. The extraordinary child actress Ana Torrent (Cria) made her debut here at the age of five. Much in the film is derivative, but Erice excels in precise evocations of childhood feelings—there is one dumbfounding moment of lyrical, joyful horror. In Spanish with subtitles.
