The Shepherd (El pastor) (2016)
Critic Reviews for The Shepherd (El pastor)
A social western where the director manages to enrich his dramatic skein with an oppressive atmosphere in crescendo, avoiding archetypes and carefully selecting the climax of the narration until the inevitable final tragedy. [Full review in Spanish]
This is a quietly stirring film with its heart in the right place, and a finale that delivers. Miguel Martín is never less than watchable as the taciturn, oblivious presence on the fringes of a sinister, squabbling melodrama.
Your pulse rate slows to the rhythms of lost rural life at the start of The Shepherd, but by the end it has hearts racing in a western-style stand-off.
A poignant and expertly restrained meditation on greed and financial hardship in rural Spain.
