This film centres on an amazing performance by the young Ana Torrent as a disturbed 8 year old living in Madrid with her two sisters. She is mourning the death of her mother (an ethereal Geraldine Chaplin), whom she conjures as a ghost – the title means Raise Ravens in English. Touching and thought provoking, this remains one of Spain’s most important films.
