Surprisingly enjoyed and helped with my spanish
4 May 2019 | by estebansitoSee all my reviews

Despite the very subtle Marxist undertones, I still can appreciate the movie; the actors and actresses all did well, and the story although exaggerated is still interesting. A story of the haves and have-nots, the problems of the rich and the poor. An elderly rich (stereotypical bourgeois) woman named Elsa is going mad, obviously going senile, and treating her servants (and grandson) with disdain by verbally berating them. The grandson Andres, is eccentric, and a good example of the stereotypical middle aged rich hier that has no aim in life, spending money lavishly. The story begins when Andres brings in a new servant girl (Estella), who he lusts for. Although Andres lusts for her, Estella falls for another boy. A boy named Mario that lost his job from being accused of stealing, and who also is among a family of the poor and downtrodden. The story then evolves into the downward spiral of the rich, and the poor, who are desperately trying to endure their strife, even if they have to steal. A very sad story that feels real. I'd go into more detail but I don't want to spoil it. Sorry, that I didn't write in spanish, if I wrote in spanish I think I'd confuse people because my spanish writing isn't that good
