The Cantabrian Mountains in northern Spain furnish the backdrop for this 2007 drama about a teenage cyclist (Oscar Abad); his headstrong sister (Marian Aguilera), a social worker at a nursing home; and a retired farmer and artist (Alvaro de Luna) who visits the home regularly to see the elderly woman who reared him (Mary Gonzalez). The old lady's odious absentee sons want to deface her land with condos, while the sister, in a tedious story thread, is torn between two men she doesn't love. Director Mario Camus (The House of Bernardo Alba) has an eye for the picturesque; the cycling scenes function as a travelogue. 115 min.
