Movie Info

Gonzalo Justiniano's El Leyton (Hasta que la Muerte Nos Separe (El Leyton: Until Death Do Us Part) is about a man facing up to an angry village. El Leyton (Juan Pablo Saez) returns to his hometown and is nearly killed by an angry mob. He asks to explain his side of the story. He admits to sleeping with the wife of his best friend, and that he has carried on with more than a few local housewives. Instead of death, the town creates a more fitting punishment. This film was screened at the San Sebastian Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi


Critic Reviews for El Leyton

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

Director Gonzalo Justiniano beautifully captures the fishing village but never quite captures the story.

Nov 21, 2003 | Rating: 2.5/4

El Leyton never rises above the level of a soap opera, although the steamy sex and Lo's abundant nudity might make it worthwhile for some viewers.

Nov 21, 2003 | Rating: 2/4

Does a fine job of building up a sense of dread as its adulterous relationship gathers steam. So it's all the more disappointing when the movie ultimately collapses.

A barely elevated telenovela.

Not only in its plot, but also in its male rivalry does El Leyton seem like Harold Pinter's Betrayal set by the sea.

Even with all the flaws in the characters (and the filmmaking), we become intrigued.
