An elderly man returns to Spain after visiting the US during the Gold Rush and losing his fortune. He returns because his son has died leaving two daughters, and the son has left a note stating that one of the two is a bastard child. The grandfather hopes to find out which is his true granddaughter.


This in a movie version of Perez Galdos's novel . I mean you got to understand the historical context where it happens. There are several reasons to watch this movie. The first rate performance of the Spanish actor Fernando Fernan Gomez (actor,writer, theater director, drama writer,etc.), a national treasure . His performance in this movie won a Goya ( the Spanish's academy awards ) . The 2 performances offered by Fernan Gomez in "El Abuelo" and "La lengua de las mariposas " can be counted among the best in recent years .This actor is admired by Banderas,Bardem ,etc. Then we have Rafael Alonso as El Abuelo's friend .Another magnificent actor .All the cast really is very well chosen. Garci direct the movie with a strong hand , caring a lot about the acting . If only for the performances it will be worth to spend your time watching this movie and remember the story was devised by one of the best universal writers ever . Your own university will tell you that...
