Time Out says

Another preposterous tale of obsessional love from the director of Lovers finds Aranda still peddling his mix of TV movie visuals, faux-liberationist misogyny and tired storylines. Lorry driver Antonio is due to wed the gorgeous Carmen, but all that goes awry when he finds a photo of her in the company of an old flame. Cue seriously pathological behaviour from a character whose problems are rumoured to originate with southern inbreeding, and you have the makings of a plot with nada in the empathy stakes. 'What's he looking for?' asks one trucker. 'His own downfall,' the other replies (it's that kind of diner). A showdown in the rain is lifted from the previous film; and along the way the crudest of expositions is matched only by the vulgar portrayal of women as sex-obsessed primitivists equated with the fecund orange crops of the region.
