Brutal, excellent moral tale, dealing with four rabbit hunters. Three Spanish Civil War veterans return to an old battleground that is now filled with rabbits. Merlo, the outing organizer, hopes to borrow some money from his war buddy, Mayo, now a rich businessman. The tensions between the

two build with frightening force, and old angers and rivalries are taken out on the rabbits with frightening brutality. Mayo is killed by an accidental shot from Merlo's gun. Prada, believing the shot intentional, drives his jeep head on towards Merlo, who shoots him in the face. Caba, Mayo's

teenage brother-in-law, stares numbly at the bloodied corpses. The tensions are well realized by the ensemble. In pitting friend against friend in senseless slaughter, Saura has created a fine allegory for the Spanish Civil War.
