Historical movie about the political situation in the north of Spain, after and before the Muslim conquest of Spain.
21 August 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Very Interesting movie which, –in spite of what you could expect from the censorship during general Franco's rule–, treats with surprising freedom and equanimity the human groups, the traditions and the political situation in the north of Spain during the eighth century, after and before the Muslim conquest of Spain.

The film exalts the nobility Christian faith and pride of the basque people, besides their love to Spain in that period of time when they had conflicts with the Gothic monarchy of Don Rodrigo (Rodericus), who was betrayed by some of his hispanic partners so that the empire was lost after the Guadalete River Battle (711 a.C.) , and the Spanish catholic resilient warriors had to move to the north of Spain to join their forces and remake up the military strategy that would take them (us) eight centuries until the muslims were thrown out from the Spanish Renacentist Reign in 1492 a.C.. Despite the historical licenses, and the beautiful love story, the movie is thrilling, narratively tense and epic, the actors are surprisingly plausible, and over them all, the great José Bodalo, who can be said to be our Spanish Spencer Tracy
