    This much acclaimed and Academy Award nominated film is streaming on Netflix. In Spanish with subtitles.

    It’s an interesting movie, and beautifully filmed in warm-toned black and white.  I feel about it as I felt about The Artist: I liked it, but am a bit puzzled about the acclaim it’s getting. I think the popularity has more to do with timing than anything. Anyway, give it a watch. I don’t think you’ll hate it, and you may even love it.

    Watched it on Netflix (thank you), and found it to be mesmerizing and intense.   A time or two, had to take a break.  When it first came out, I thought it was an Italian production.  Strangely enough, many scenes did remind me of the slums of Naples I had encountered some 20 years ago.

      From the title, I too, thought it was Italian.
