16. THE CEMETERY AT NIEMBRU
LA SEÑORA, EL ABUELO and EPÍLOGO

 

EL ABUELO, Directed by José Luis Garci, the film takes place in the beginning of the twentieth century in a little village in the north. Here people still value family honour. Don Rodrigo de Arista, Count of Albrit, thinks he knows all about it, that is, until he returns from South America, old, half blind and ruined.

EPÍLOGO, Directed by Gonzalo Suárez, the film tells the story of the conflicts between two writers who are in love with the same woman. They have worked together for years. One day they separate. Ten years later Ditirambo visits Rocabruno to get out of him just one last story…

LA SEÑORA Television series. Directed by Lluís Ma Güell.

The cemetery at Niembru: Located at the inlet of El Vau between the villages of Barru and Niembru, this beautiful cemetery together with the neoclassical church of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores (Our Lady of Sorrows) (1794) is one of the most beautiful sights along the Asturian coast. Close to Cabu Prietu, the inlet is 42 metres wide at its mouth and 142 metres long. It is dry at low tide. They used to tie up boats next to the church in order to load up lemons, bacon and walnuts, destined for French ports.
