In this film, based on a true story in Spain in the 70s, Pilar has just found love with Elvira when someone turns them in, and men in white coats drag Pilar off to an asylum, where she receives electric shocks while being shown erotic pictures of women. Years later she finds her way back to Elvira, seriously damaged physically and mentally. Told in a series of flashbacks after a failed suicide attempt, Juan Carlos Claver’s film is both a socially conscious drama and a tearjerker—and the tear-jerking is pretty effective. In Spanish with subtitles. 97 min.
