Spanish Civil War in the Mountains

Author: David Carbajales ( from Gijón, Asturies, Spain
9 December 2002

This is movie is about the story of the people who keep on fighting after the Spanish Civil War were officially finished. They were republicans who took shelter among the mountains (principally the mountains in the north of Spain, between Asturias and León). These people were called "maquis" and defended the thought of a Spain free of the implacable fascism of the illicit military government of General Franco, who took the power in a bloody cruel civil war. Ramiro, Santiago and Gildo are the three main characters of the movie. Santiago and Gildo got killed and eventually Ramiro decided to escape to France, bored of being isolated by the democratic governments of other countries in Europe what kept General Franco in despite of the Republican Government, elected by the Spanish people and not by the power of guns.

This movie explains a not well known part of the recent history of Spain and it is based of a novel by Julio Llamazares with the same title: "Luna de lobos", that means "Moon of wolves".

Hi David. I think "maquis" didn't fight for a free Spain, but for their lives. After the war, republican soldiers (specially "militiamen") were condemned to a sure dead by Franco's government. Nonevent they kept their idea of a free and democratic Spain.

I've read the book but I haven't see the film yet, and I would like it. It's a good way to know the adventures, risks, misery of these people and their families.

Do you know if it's available on DVD?

thanks and regards,
