Description

El Sur (Criterion Collection) on DVD

Ten years after making his mark on Spanish cinema with The Spirit of the Beehive, Victor Erice returned to filmmaking with this adaptation of a novella by Adelaida Garcia Morales, which deepens the director's fascination with childhood, fantasy, and the legacy of his country's civil war. In the North of Spain, Estrella grows up captivated by her father, a doctor with mystical powers and by the enigma of his youth in the South, a near-mythical region whose secrets seem to haunt him more and more as time goes on. Though Erice's original vision also encompassed a long section set in the South itself, which was never made, El Sur remains an experience of rare perfection and satisfaction, drawing on painterly cinematography by Jose Luis Alcaine to evoke the enchantments of memory and the inaccessible, inescapable mysteries of the past.
