This beautiful film is the story of the Count of Albrit, now an old man that tries to discover a guarded secret that one of his 2 granddaughters is not legitimate. The movie is filmed in Asturias, has beautiful scenery and a good plot with valuable lessons although it moves slowly at first. It is probably best suited for a higher level Spanish class or a small class as it will require a bit of patience until the plot gets rolling. Study guide comes in both English and Spanish with a follow up discussion/writing assignment.
