Synopsis
The Spanish saying goes, "Raise ravens and they'll pluck out your eyes."
9-year-old Ana and her two sisters have lost their parents, their mother to a painful illness, and their father to a sweet death with his married lover. Ana's aunt is now their ward and Ana's mute and wheelchair-bound grandmother moves in with them. Strangely enough, Ana's deceased parents appear to her as if they have never departed. The grown-up Ana also drops by from 20 years after. General Franco was in his deathbed when Saura started this film. On the film's release Franco was no more and Spain was on the way to become a democracy. Cría cuervos is in part a subdued reprisal of the oppressive society and family under the Franco regime, in part a silent
elegy that presents childhood as an unavoidable tragedy. This is Ana Torrent's first film appearance after the harrowing The Spirit of the Beehive (1973). The Spanish pop song “Porque te vas” was used to such great effect that it became well-known internationall
