Imanol Uribe has made a
dramatic film for both children and adults. Carol, a twelve-year-old
Spanish-American girl from New York, travels with her mother to Spain in
the spring of 1938, at the height of the Civil War.
Separated from her beloved
father, Carol arrives in her mother's home village and transforms the secretive
family environment. Her innocence and rebellious nature drive her
at first to reject a world that is at once new and foreign -- but she soon
journeys into adulthood through a friendship with Maruja, the village teacher,
and a young local boy, Tomiche.
