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
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
decided to escape to France, bored of being isolated by the democratic
governments of other countries in Europe what kept General Franco in
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,
