Originally, the film would have run three hours, but producer Querejeta decided not to allow the filming of the latter 90 minutes (which would have taken place in the south of Spain), because he thought the 95-minute film Erice did was sufficient for his purposes. The film was entered into the 1983 Cannes Film Festival.
