This movie is a gem, great story telling, great acting and the visuals. Wow. The special effect department should be awarded for the costume design, thank you for some old school effects done spectacularly.
Great storytelling (by jaydeetrotamundos)
I'm not sure what is not to like about this movie. Although I don't mind horror movies, this was told in a way without any cheap scare tactics and drawn out suspense scenes. I enjoyed the characters of the story and was very pleasantly surprised at how well the costumes and special effects were. Not top budget special effects but what they used served this kind of movie perfectly.What might seem like a very dark, scary horror movie on the surface ends up being a very interesting story delivered in a way that I think a wider audience will enjoy. I'm sure it would be disturbing for <more>
small children, but it certainly won't keep any teenagers or adults awake at night. If the description of the movie that IMDB gives sounds like something your interested in, then give it a shot. I think you will end up enjoying this foreign gem. One last note, I watched it in its original language with subtitles. I don't know if watching it dubbed in English would take away from the experience or not.
This wonderful film calls up the mediaeval soul that still harrows the depths of post-Christian consciousness (by philip-davies31)
Errementari 2017 -IMDB reviewThis is a parable, in the form of an extended mystery play, that returns us to the mediaeval world-view, where, according to the theology of that period, Christ was believed to have harrowed Hell, and wrested souls still capable of redemption from the grasp of the Devil. The atmosphere and symbolism of the film is steeped in ancient traditions of Christian belief, and the blacksmith is revealed here as a Christ-figure, in a very muscular avatar of Jesus.There is a dream-like, or visionary merging of appearance and reality, of imagination and Truth. The little <more>
girl Usue with her simple acceptance of a mythical narrative, that to her is just as real as the little scenes she creates while playing with her doll, cannot make these distinctions: When the doll has her head torn off by a cruel lad, it is as real to the child as the mother who hanged herself - and the pursuit to restore the doll's head, and thus the 'life' of this childish idol, mirrors the blacksmith's symbolic imagined struggle in Hell, on Usue's behalf, for the suicide's soul to be returned, so resurrecting the body of the mother. An additional dramatic and spiritual bond between Usue and the smith, it turns out, is a guilty paternity.The innocence of children is often a way into other worlds, not accessible to the cynical, but employed by writers and filmmakers as guides to wonderlands - many creative people as various as the Spanish filmmaker del Toro, and the surreally imaginative Englishman Lewis Carroll. The creators of this film follow the wide-eyed yet very matter-of-fact little Usue to Hell and back, in a most extraordinary descent into the secret soul of tormented humanity, in search of the salvation only a return to child-like innocence can confer, as Christ has told us. Like the seemingly naive, yet profound and beautifully realised religious art of the Christian mysteries during the middle ages, the onlooker's gaze - as we watch this beautifully crafted film - is held, transfixed between wonder and horror at the spectacle of our own tormented and elevated human soul.There is in this mix also a heady whiff of blasphemy, which gives us an appropriately moral frisson as the dizzying spectacle of the damned rushing to their eternal punishment dramatises the predicament of those who have lost the consolation of the Church: For an instant we are caught out in our modern cynicism, naked and defenceless against our own death. The setting of the drama during the early nineteenth century struggles of the Basque people, in the first Carlist War, to retain their political, cultural and religious independence gives a further depth to this film, which has already been adopted by Basque critics as an important statement of their racial identity - and indeed of the ancient soul of their mysterious Nation. This narrative is tellingly merged with devilish doings when the Agent of the oppressive Spanish government, who is pursuing the blacksmith for the theft of Carlist gold, is revealed to be in fact a senior Demonic emissary!Just as in the mediaeval telling of these infernal horrors, there is a leavening of sardonic humour, as well as a more knockabout comedy redolent of the old fairground entertainments which, as well as being religious spectacles, the original mystery plays were.This perfectly realised vision is unfortunately not the sort of film to appeal to the generality of modern Anglo-Saxon audiences, whose own race memories have been all but cast out by the tawdry imaginings of Yanqui showmen and hucksters, and the meretricious politics of a cynical liberal elite that sees no value in tradition.But the film will be much more accessible to those whose blood and bone still feels a living connection with what lies beneath appearances. The Basque folklore which inspires this wonderful film is authentic, and rooted in that ancient culture. Such a folkloric ethos is permeated with beings at once fabulous and familiar, whose presence is never questioned. It is a privilege to be able to share that experience. Regrettably, it also reminds one how impoverished our inner life is today - we are as poor of spirit as we are rich in unsatisfying material indulgence. And too many of our films are mere sensations, full of sound and fury, and an experience leaving no more trace behind than the stale, discarded box of last night's pavement gluttony.Whereas this treasury of a poor and oppressed people is an everlasting feast.
What a great find I stumbled on. So refreshing to watch a film, which does not have to rely on big budgets and flashy special effects. Simply a great piece of story-telling, like watching a live theatre show.
Fun-tastic! (by tapionjr)
I loved this film for a variety of reasons. First, this film shows us a very beautiful 18th-19th century atmosphere, similar to the one Sleepy Hollow shared with us. The humour is very well managed, if you enjoyed Braindead, you will love this film. Keep in mind that humour is not the main focus either, but it still forms a big part of the film. And last but not least, it reminded me of The Darkness 2 video game , as the change between the real world and hell is quite interesting. Obviously they have differences between them, like the setting and the trajectory of the protagonists while the <more>
plot unfolds, but Erremetari manages to give me a very similar essence, and I have to reward that. The script is good for what the plot wants us to understand, because it tells the story of a blacksmith whose slave is Sartael, a demon, do not expect a very biblical argument in the background in terms of depth . Totally recommendable.
I enjoyed watching this movie. It was amazing. Great actors, great screenplay, and it has a really interesting story. :
Utterly baffled why this movie is only rated a 6.4 (by bachemar)
I don't know if the dubbed version just sucks or what. While not any kind of "purist" I watched this movie subbed. I'm sure some of the folklore bits sailed over my American head, but this movie is absolutely amazing. The acting, superb. For what isn't a blockbuster movie, the special effects are quite good. The whole feel of the world has a fantastic dark fairytale reality. If you're looking for a slasher movie, this isn't it. But it's a charming fascinating and beautiful retelling of an old folktale sprinkled with some comedic bits. Seeing it on Netflix I <more>
actually thought it was going to be a piece of schlocky European horror. Boy was I wrong.
