Movie Info

Fernando Rey plays a Spanish cardinal who returns to his home town thirty years after leaving for Rome. Rey knew that he'd left an illegitimate daughter behind, but was unaware that he also has a granddaughter (Victoria Abril). The girl is embroiled in an affair with Rey's own brother (Francisco Rabal), a Marxist activist. The filmmakers' sympathies are more with Marxism than Catholicism, but politics are secondary to the kinky romantic intrigues. Evidently Fernando Rey didn't consider Our Father (original Spanish title: Padre Nuestro) significant enough to list on his official, published resume. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The camera of Juan Amoros catches the beauties of the village, enabling us to see, along with the Cardinal, what he gave up by leaving.

Zalla gets very good performances from his mostly inexperienced actors.... The trouble is that the film is so bleak as to be almost hopeless.
