Mesmo lúdico, Erice se mantém implacável em seu rigor formal, subordinando a narrativa a um ritmo lento como o passar das estações. Na memória, o que permanece gravado são os olhos de jabuticaba – lunares, impressionáveis, expressivos – da heroína mirim Torrent ("Cría Cuervos").

A wonderful look at the innocence and naivety associated with childhood that's made with a patient, knowing eye.  Final Grade:  B+

A fim I'm afraid I didn't fully appreciate, but a lot of people like this one.
