Description

Febrero de 1956. El invierno está siendo terrible, el más frío en España desde hace décadas. Esto no será un obstáculo para que Ana Martí, ahora reportera de un popular semanario de sucesos, acuda a un aislado pueblecito del Maestrazgo aragonés para cubrir el caso de una niña a la que han brotado los estigmas de la Pasión. Pronto su olfato de periodista le dice que el caso de Isabelita no es el único suceso extraño que acontece en Las Torres… El recuerdo de una niña muerta años atrás en misteriosas circunstancias, el fanatismo religioso, o el frío glacial y la nieve que amenazan con dejar al pueblo incomunicado son el telón de fondo de la intrigas de El gran frío. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION February of 1956. The winter has been terrible—the coldest in Spain in decades. This will not stop Ana Martí, now a reporter for a popular news weekly, from accessing a remote, isolated town in the Aragonese Maestrazgo to cover the story of a girl who is showing the marks of the stigmata. The priest and the mayor welcome her warmly, delighted by the idea that their “little saint” could become nationally famous. But neither Don Julián, the skeptical town bigwig, nor the majority of the townspeople share those sympathies toward the outsider. Only Mauricio, a poor disabled boy, the intelligent and strange little Eugenia, and the tormented widow who provides lodging to Ana seem to be willing to talk with her. Soon, her journalist’s instinct tells her that the case of Isabelita isn’t the only strange event to happen in Las Torres … the memory of a dead girl years ago under mysterious circumstances, religious fanaticism, and the glacial cold and snow that threaten to cut off the town are the backdrop for the plot of The Big Chill, a stunning thriller about the most base instincts of the human condition, that is also an extraordinary portrait of the raw reality of rural Spain in the 1950s.
