A priest falls in love with the mother of one of his students, who is supposed to be a widow. But the fact is her husband is still alive but running away from Franco , because he was a writer with an ideology that clashed with Franco. He lived in a hole inside the wall of his closet.
The movie had its great moments , when the child had to act like an orphan , and cover the existence of his father , and when the father cried and hit walls suffocating and longing to go out and see the sun light again.
The way the movie ended was disappointing -this is getting usual in Spanish movies- but Javier Camara is my favorite Spanish actor of all times. No matter how does the movie go , he just acts greatly,,, he lives the character to the limits and thats what really matters.
