Carlos Saura has been one of our finest directors for almost five decades, and, after a bunch of irregular films in the nineties, returns in top form with "El séptimo día". Based on the tragic true events happening in 1992 in Spain, the film captures the essence of the maddening atmosphere that gave way to the slaughter of Puerto Hurraco.

In Spain there is little tradition of portraying real-life events in film. Writers Loriga and Saura were actually heavily criticized by some, as if their film would bring back the painful memories that most people had chosen to forget. However, their film portrays the slaughter and the events that led to it with gusto and with no sign of sensationalism.

In fact, a great part of the film is devoted to depict the summer romance of a young girl (Yohana Cobo, what a discovery) and a lifeguard (Oriol Vila, another breakthrough). Thus, the murderers (outstanding Juan Diego, José Luis Gómez, Victoria Abril and Ana Wagener) are relegated to a secondary subplot for almost half of the film.

Saura managed to assemble one of the greatest casts of the last few years. Apart from the aforementioned, José García, Eulalia Ramón, Carlos Hipólito and, in bit parts, Elia Galera, Juan Sanz and Carlos Kaniowski are worth mentioning for their excellent work in "El séptimo día".

The best: the cast and the good taste in filming a real-life tragedy. The worst: that some people criticized it before they had even seen it. They should not forget that we are bound to repeat our history if we choose to forget it.

Master filmmaker Saura rarely directs someone else's screenplay, but he brings his full visual powers to this astonishing true story of a family feud that lasted some 30 years and nearly destroyed a village in 1990.

The war between the Jimenez and Fuentes families started with an ill-fated love affair, and the subsequent vengeance left family members dead and incarcerated. Three decades later, the teenage Isabel Jimenez (Cobo) has grown up with the feud as a fact of her life, with occasional flare-ups between her parents (Garcia and Ramon) and the Fuentes siblings (Abril, Diego and Gomez). But even as a new wave of violence threatens to erupt, she has other things to think about, such as her crush on the village bad boy (Vila).

Saura directs the story skilfully, with sun-drenched cinematography that strikingly captures the colours and textures of this agricultural community while hinting at the revenge festering beneath the surface. As usual, Saura's characters break into song frequently; it's not a musical, but it beautifully shows how important music is in everyday Spanish culture, vividly demonstrating their energy and passions.

Meanwhile, Loriga's screenplay builds the tension to almost unbearable levels of all-consuming bitterness, while normal life continues as well. Even though the Fuentes family is the nominal villain here (from Isabel's point of view), even their rough existence gets some sympathy. They're the outcasts, so no wonder they go so mad! Abril is almost unrecognisable as the leader of this pack. And the actors wonderfully bring the village to life–extended family members and colourful locals alike.

The title refers to the day of creation when God rested, which Isabel notes is when the most horrible things happen. The film's climax is shockingly powerful–emotional and terrifying as years of resentment and frustration boil over. While the story is involving and moving, it's told in a surprisingly matter-of-fact way that refuses to find a lesson amid the tragedy. We have to discover that ourselves.
