Dividing Bar

A decent film, based on a local Spanish Christian legend, though not particularly memorable in any element apart from the appearance of the wonderful Didier Haudepin

I ordered the DVD from Amazon, hoping there would be subtitling. There wasn't. Too much religion spoils this film and the quality of the images is very poor. The purchase was justifiable only because of Didier's involvement.

Whaaaat, no reviews of this movie having as it does the splendiferous talents of His French Cinematic Highness, Didier Haudepin no less?

Well, I was at a disadvantage for a start being that my knowledge of Spanish was zilch and no subtitles were provided. I just had to try and pick up on the plot as the film went along. Didier was his usual charming self as the kind, happy Cotolay. The friars certainly took a liking to him ... ! Unfortunately Didier, wonderful boy actor though he is, couldn't lift this film from the dregs surrounded as he was by adult actors of the strictly wooden variety. Didier, just striking puberty, looked great in his tunic and short skirt.

I award the film one star but Didier makes up for the other five!
