5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant film from Saura Sept. 3 2008
Cria Cuervos (Raise Crows) is a brilliant film from Carlos Saura. It follows three sisters and how they deal with the deaths of their mother and father. It's a heartbreaking film but also full of surreal touches and wonder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saura's Masterpiece May 2 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Once upon a time, there was a dictator who ruled Spain whose name was Franco. While the most famous Spanish director, Luis Buñuel, left the country to work uninhibited in France and Mexico, and the next generation's most famous director, Almodóvar, was just an infant, Carlos Saura was the director who remained in Spain making films that were critical of the dictatorial regime but escaped the vigilant eyes of the censors because of their subtlety and his use of metaphor and symbolism. Cría is the product of this masterful director who dared to challenge the authoritarian government.
On the surface, it is the story of a young girl, Ana, who is obsessed with death because she witnesses the slow death of her mother from a painful disease; but she also witnesses the infidelities and hypocrisy of the adults that surround her: her father who dies while having intimate relations with a close family friend, an aunt who is left as her guardian who is incapable of affection, and a bawdy maid who doesn't know how to appropriately deal with this young girl.
When one views the film for a second or third time, he/she realizes that it is a scathing indictment of the treatment of women in traditional Spain, the Spain that Franco was intent on re-creating. There is the invalid grandmother, unable to speak, who symbolizes the forced silence of women or, at least, the failure to take them seriously during the Franco era. There is the mother (exquisitely portrayed by Geraldine Chaplin) who sacrifices her career as a budding concert pianist to become a mother and wife (again, the traditional role of the repressed Spanish woman).

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional! April 11 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The plot structure is emotionally intricate, with many subtleties and moments of serenity and passion. The cinematography captures the drama perfectly and the soundtrack weaves beautifully into the texture of the movie. Highly recommended.
