 What you get here is a Spanish art flick with Nazis and little boys getting killed. Not a very happy film and the closest thing I can compare it to is something like SALO except here they use actual little kids as the victims.
 The story concerns a former Nazi doctor/child murderer/child molester who attempts suicide and winds up being kept alive in an iron-lung. Then a young fellow shows up who wants to be the old Nazi's nurse and maybe follow in his pervy footsteps. There are some horror-film elements and it's all pretty downbeat but worth a watch if you can handle something pretty depressing that explores the ugliness of man and the consequences of one's actions. There's also a very striking ending image which sums up the theme of the cycle of violence and depravity running throughout the film.
 There was a sorta similar film from 1998 called APT PUPIL which was based on a Stephen King book but I never bothered watching it since it just looked like another big Hollywood waste of time. I'm also sure there are no 10-year-old boys getting their throats cut in that one.
