The soulful young actress Magaly Solier manages to carry this dull, obvious Spanish drama.

Simply on the story level, "Amador" could have been a better film.

While on paper this may not sound like a movie you would enjoy, it is almost inexplicably entertaining while you are watching it.

A grim tale of loneliness, faith and death.

Spanish film. I didn't find it mind blowing or anything but it's worth a look if you enjoy spanish films. Nice cinematography and decent acting.
