To Die In San Hilario
Reviewed by: Paul GriffithsRead Paul Griffiths's film review of To Die In San Hilario
Distinctly dodgy animation in title menu doesn’t get things off to a good start here, but following this there’s just enough content to keep a fan of the film diverted for a short while.
After the trailer, writer-director Laura Mañà kicks off the short round of interviews. She’s followed by Lluis Homar, Ana Fernández and others with everyone waxing romantic and philosophical about the story. There’s nothing too challenging here.
The ‘B-roll’ is on set, behind-the-scenes footage. It’s pretty amateurish and the sound quality varies wildly from plainly audible to mic-in-gale (although for English speakers the subtitles fill in the gaps), but anyone interested in the raw mechanics of shooting will still get a six minute insight of cast and director at work.Reviewed on: 27 Nov 2006
