abstract

In 1996, the movie El perro del hortelano, a film version of the homonymous comedy by Lope de Vega due to Pilar Miró, premiered in Spain. This essay aims to study how the rather vague and reduced space of the piece becomes a filmic space characterised by realism, as well as abundance. Attention is also paid to some omission of dialogue, very important to understand the character of Teodoro; they can be compensated by the silent image. Finally, the consequences of having shot the film in different parts of Portugal, easily recognisable to the Spanish spectator, are analysed.
