Superb film about an unforgettable character of Spanish history .
7 September 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Juan de Orduña reunited with Aurora Bautista in "Agustina De Aragón" 1950, Spanish production that recreates the siege and the battle of Zaragoza in the War of Independence of 1808 , against the French troops of Napoleon. Agustina is a woman who puts her life in service to her country and her people , and her attitude full importance in the development of the battle and subsequent events .

Agustina De Aragón was a character performed authentic document delivery of vital importance to Spain in this war . It should be noted that the film " Agustina De Aragon " was probably one of the more elaborate Spanish blockbusters of the moment. Distant technical mediocrity other Spanish films of the moment , this film presents a technical section that seems to have spared no expense : care sets (some scenes were shot in real settings even as the Cathedral of Zaragoza ) and correct special effects, costumes and photography. It's a pity the terrible sound editing , it is barely audible in scenes with music . The assembly is acceptable but not remarkable : melt greatly abused in black and medium shots , though it appears the odd close-up of the beautiful Aurora Bautista .

While the film is superb in terms of the bill technique itself is quite chaotic as the cast . Despite having fundamental names like Fernando Rey or lesser extent Aurora Bautista , the overbearing are constant but perhaps reproduce exactly what happened in 1808, as Spain was one of the few nations that strongly resisted the invasion Napoleonic . Aurora Bautista is beautiful in her character , but her performance lacks the charisma enough to be the heroine of the film.

In short, it is a very patriotic film of its time , which will please the lover of Spanish history , in particular the period of Napoleon's invasion , but from the standpoint of film can be long and repetitive. Yet it is a film must for Spanish classical theater enthusiasts .
