Historical film about the count Fernan Gonzalez ,creator of the county Castile ,Spain's origin
This Spanish historical film is based on epic events and historic characters ,thus appear:Fernan Gonzalez(923-970),King Sancho of Navarra,King Ramiro II of Leon and Abderraman III. Movie concerns about the count of Castile Fernan Gonzalez(Espartaco Santoni)helped by his general(Cesar Romero) who arranged themselves to unify and make Castile independent from the Leon Kingdom, ruled by Ramiro II(Fernando Rey and married to Alida Valli)and confronted king Sancho of Navarra(Broderick Crawford).Fernan was imprisoned(943)but was freed later. Fernan Gonzalez ,also count of Lara, broke the tribute of the one hundred maids with the Moors governed by Abderraman III(German Cobos) proclaimed caliph independent of Cordoba granting independence of Bagdag.The Christian kingdoms were united against the Muslim enemy and vanquished them in Simancas.Fernan Gonzalez created the county of Castile with inherited title and his successors will separate totally from Leon. Fernan Gonzalez history has been sung and written in poetry by jesters and minstrels(in the film represented by the singer Frankie Avalon).
The movie is a biographic chronicle about Spanish hero similar to ¨The Cid¨(Anthony Mann) but with lack luster and budget.However the great highlights film are,of course,the meticulously staged battles that convey us a spectacular scenario.The picture packs historical events,gorgeous landscapes,glimmer scenarios,and battles well staged with hundreds of people. The film was shot in authentic fortresses and strongholds as the castle of Berlanga of Duero(appears in the sheet movie poster),castle of Gormaz and Peñafiel, besides in locations as Covarrubias and Soria with its monuments and church as Santo Domingo and Saint Joan of Duero. The flick will appeal to minor epic films buffs. Rating : Better than average and entertaining.
