Not a bad film...
28 May 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Not a bad film in the technical features, well shooted and with some good acting, mostly from José Nieto in the role of Pedro Churruca Jr (the bad brother later redeemed by doing treason to his previous comrades and returning to the "right" track).

Sáenz de Heredia was a good director, one of the top names of Spanish cinema, and He has much better pictures than this one.

Anyway, the script (based on a novel written by Franco) is very partial, and depicts the enemy as bloody thirsty avengers who want to destroy everything that is "good" and "pure" (to be fair the rebel side, commanded by Franco, killed at least as much people as the other

  • and possibly more - during the war, and when the war was over, the


dictatorship created by Franco continued to killing people from the prisons for another ten years! So when you see Raza try to put things in their right terms. This is a movie made from the winner's point of view, so you better don't take the political side too seriously if you want to understand the real situation of Spain in the last years of the 19th century and the first forty years of the 20th.
