Great Spanish Film

Very mysterious ghost story , that is well acted and sometimes quite creepy. One scene involving a teen girl explaining to her mother that her father tried to rape her was a little discomforting but good overall. Also the father is murdered and stuffed in a ice chest

This is an amazing tale of love, forgivness and family, however there are some themes in this film that a pre-teen would not be ready for. It is not too bad however, there is some breif nudity (the side of a breast), a very bloody scene (shows a dead body with lots of blood surrounding him), a rape theme (including pedophilia and incest), pot smoking, one use of the f-word and the film is very emotional and depressing. It is a great film, but be careful when showing it to children.
