Spanish people are notoriously passionate people. From the start of the film you can see the strong family orientation they have. They are all paying respects and cleaning up the graves of their passed parents and loved one. It is part of the culture and tradition. They have many processes for death, paying respects, and unfinished business. There is also chismis, just like the Philippines. There’s ton of drama, and people like to expose others on it. Despite the cold blooded murder, it was an authentic exchange between family. Mother and daughter, sisters, family friend.
