The Castle of Purity (El Castillo de la pureza) Reviews
February 19, 2008
Clasico solido del cine mexicano, quizas lo unico bueno que ha dirigido Ripstein en toda su carrera. Claudio Brook es la clase de actor que le urge con desesperacion al cine mexicano actual.

One of the best Mexican films, if not the best, marks the debut of the great Diana Bracho who would later become the country's most versatile actress. Probably the only Ripstein film where he's actually restrained, under control and without falling into his usual excesses that would be the trademark of his highly irregular filmography.
The film has almost a poetic visual quality about the suffocation of a family being trapped in a house by his psychotic patriarch. Based on a real story.
