Los Santos inocentes / The Holy Innocents LES FILMS DE CANNES À BUCAREST 10  - FOCUS SPAIN

Award for Best Actor, Cannes 1984

Directed by: Mario Camus

Year of production: 1984

Country: Spain

Genre: drama

Length: 105 minutes

The picture tells the story of a peasant family from Estremadura who, as many others, lives under and is subjected to the landowning class ruling over them through the control of resources. The members of the family dream with the possibility of escaping poverty, of learning to read and write, to express themselves. Those are the means affording a forward tread. They dare to dream and later they will dare to try. But their life has been a continuous renouncing and obeying. Their fate has been preordained for many generations, and only something violent, entirely new and beyond the daily routine, will smash up the regular life to which they are condemned.

It was voted the third best Spanish film by professionals and critics in 1996 Spanish cinema centenary.
