While this is a great movie, the listing here for it is wrong. They say this is a two-disc set and there is only one. They say there is an English track and it is in Spainish with English subtitles. This is a real good movie and they do have some good extras, but I feel you should be warned what to expect if you order this.
The Devil's Backbone deals with many complex relationships in an orphanage. The complexities are not just amongst the living and breathing residents, but also between them and the "one who sighs". This movie really blurs the line between the living and the dead.
A fantastic film by Pedro Almodovar, the acting is real good, a child has been murdered and nobody seems to know how, somehow he will come back to punish his murderer, the trama has place in an orfanage in a far away place of Spain.. excellent movie.
I found this movie to be excellent. It is worthwhile and a great addition to a DVD collection. I saw it after watching Pan's Labrynth and was not familiar with the Director Guillermo Del Toro but after watching pan's Labrynth I was interested in seeing more of his work. This movie was made before Pan's Labrynth and is fascinating, suspenseful, and visually powerful. I gave away my previous copy and so this is a replacement that I do not plan on giving away.
