Fine character study set in Northern Spain
14 March 2000 | by filfy-2See all my reviews

In a subtle performance, veteran actor Federico Luppi portrays Manuel, a poet returning to his tiny hamlet after years spent abroad.

This film examines the relationships of Manuel, his family and his friends set against the backdrop of the imminent destruction of Higuera, which is to be flooded by a reservoir.

This film was directed by a master hand, Enrique Gabriel-Lipschutz, based on a script by himself and Lucia Lipschutz. They are wonderfully able at creating side characters who are real and vital, and who neither descend into stock characters nor parody.

In sum, "Las Huellas Borradas" (literal translation: Washed-Away Footprints) presents a philosophical view on how the notion of place can affect one's thoughts and emotions.
