Injustice is the worst of evils
2 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

When the movie came out in Madrid in 1981, I had to queue for 1 hour two days before the release in order to buy a ticket. Franco was dead and buried but the Spanish public was craving for truth about the past and this movie seemed to provide some kind of truth : the past involvement of Guardia Civil in tortures.

I remember the public sitting and watching religiously. Dictatorship had ended 6 years before but the fear of reprisals on the movie theatre was still palpable.

Not withstanding the historical and political context of its release, the film is interesting, not slanderous, which means it is not a caricature, and I can remember a few scenes artistically shot. One really feels for the two wrongly convicted characters. What does an innocent man think when he is unduly imprisonned ? Food for thought in many countries...and not necessarily the ones one has in mind.

The movie (7/10) also showed us that Spanish cinema had survived the 36 years of franquism.
