The arrival of the Gods (Llegada de los dioses)

Julio is a young failed painter who lost his sight, so he returns to his father´s house with his girlfriend, Veronica. Felipe, Julio´s father, is a famous and rich artist who lives with a friend couple, Artemio and Matilde, Nuria’s parents. After his arrival, Julio begins to feel that there are many secrets in the house. Felipe cheats on his friend Artemio with Matilde and even tries to seduce Verónica. Julio, realizing everything, begins to think that Nuria might be his sister. But that is not Felipe’s only hidden truth. Julio will find out that, in the past, his father used to manage a concentration camp where people were tortured and killed.


RELEVANT FACTS: The arrival of the Gods (1971) rests on the father-son conflict, very common in the political story of many countries: while the father is conservative, the son is anti-establishment. The difference here, and what makes it more interest, is the father’s fascist past, that could be as the axis of a story about a fascinating theme like the recycling (with the acquiescence of governments or just personal hiding) of the leaders of the national-socialist party after the second World War throughout the world (from the US to even Spain).
