A Franco's dictatorship realistic history
5 May 2002 | by (Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain) – See all my reviews

It don't seems logic that Franco's ideological censors allowed a realistic history based on poor situation in Madrid in 50's early. But the dictatorship's target was to dissuade these people than want to left your rural work and change to a urban way of life while the Spanish industrial development level of these years couldn't yet get job to a lot of workers. 'Surcos' is like a Italian 'neorealistic' film, but also has a hight technical level, with esthetics influence from the European (mainly German) expressionism. A great b&w photo, and a good work of players. A 'rara avis' in the Spanish cinematography oh these years. Later, the director J.A. Nieves Conde, had a sad career, so far in all ways from 'Surcos'.
