I had seen some eps on Italian tv & impressed by this "Land of Wolves" I've purchased it on dvd...I think they managed to capture the essence of the adventure old-fashioned style (but with an eye to the modern pace too) combined with lively characters & hot passion as well.
It's filmed outside Madrid (countryside), the photography & care for details as the period customs, houses etc are so well made to feel as a big screen's movie; the actors are good too (some had been seen also in other series or films, like the 1 who plays Mr Lobo, actor also for Almodòvar).
I've also appreciated some nuance of the dialogues, as a reference linked to the basic idea of the "lobo" (the personal name mirrors the "wolf" as wild nature in fact: as for ex."leave now or I'm gonna eat you!", it sounds cheesy as some of those US warewolves' pulp movies I know, but actually here this attitude just fits right).
-In any case pay attention to Spanish dvds in general if your Espanol isn't stellar, because it's rare to find Eng subitles, there're only the Spanish ones (& this is no exception)...plus I've been disappointed to find neither a specific commentary for some ep. nor a real interview/behind the scenes documentary (apart a list of the roles, some little promos/brief backstage previously made for tv).
Regarding this point it'd be important to add something more specific, since usually Spanish best series are also sold abroad, therefore it'd be nice to have more info (to think outside the box would be useful for European productions, generally speaking).
Plus it was also annoying to see the same anti-piracy promo at the start of every single dvd of the set, impossible to skip: just weird! Last complaint (& another common thing), there's no booklet inside with the titles/synopsis of the eps.
-However, the story begins when the poor Bravo bros (the parents died years before) come back to what once was their home in Spain (after an heist gone bad in Portugal), ready to start anew (especially the older 1), but unfortunately their house is on the land of villain Mr Bravo...The wealthy Bravo family includes the 4 daughters, quite different from one another & a mysterious nanny to look after them (the mother died before). There's also a young man living with them, since raised by Lobo (he was an orphan), become his trusted handyman at the estate.
Soon another character will join the humble Bravo's household to help them building a well, he's a doctor from Switzerland who's discovered that in their lot there's a mineral water's source (they meet each other in jail, even if they're all good hearted roles): he's also a funny man, in fact he plays the comic relief too.
Overall the story reminded me of a mix of Little Women with a Spaghetti Western, if this make any sense! ;-D)
Besides if you're a true romantic you'll probably root for the leading star crossed couple, made by the older Bravo & the eldest of the Lobos, but personally I've been hooked by another forbidden duo, Anibal & Nieves, since they steal every scene with their smoking chemestry & bumpy relationship...
Last but not least there are 2 interesting strong female roles to follow: the 2nd one of the Lobo's daughter for her personal struggle, & the "emancipated" daugther of the town shop's owner, a widow teacher recently returned to the tiny village with her little son (1 of the few helping the Bravos' cause for justice).
The drama is rich of twits & turns so I garantee that it will keep you entertained! & I'm so looking forward to see where the saga will go next after a surprising finale...
