A beautiful film and documentary for Spanish Cinema lovers and collectors,
12 November 2015 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

On the fiftieth anniversary of the Spanish Civil War, a German filmmaker, "Hans" (Rüdiger Vogler) filmed a documentary in Madrid on this topic, but its focus is expanding to Spain today, and to the Madrid of the moment.

From this idea, the director Patino made a film in which joins reflection on documentary film, and reflection on the history of Spain from 1936 until the 80s, the same thing happening to his protagonist, focus, theme, they are expanding so much that the intentions, objectives, blurring go on such an ambitious and diffuse reflection on present and past.

This film is like a newspaper report: demonstrations against NATO; the funeral of the Mayor Enrique Tierno Galvan; Juan Barranco, the successor in office, dance dress "Chulapo"; Kings inaugurated the Planetarium; the atmosphere of the "Movida"; festivals ... and brief appearances of all kinds of personalities like Antonio Lopez, painter, and Miguel Rios singer. At the beginning the film images of Madrid in an exhibition on the Civil War exhibition that appears briefly Patino offered. Ana Duato, in her film debut, gets naked and speaks English ...

In this work of fiction with an important documentary, Patino takes a sceptical approach, with a touch of bitterness, but does so with a certain tone fascia. The interest of an open, remains burdened by an uncertainty that is irritating, as well as absence gives some criticism of the Madrid 80s.

"Madrid" has two films, a movie and a documentary, but badly crimped, locked and sloppily assembled worse. At the end of the day, Patino has always exceeded his documentaries, among which highlight Songs for after a war and Caudillo, While the film is quite confusing fiction with Rudiger Vogler wanderings through the streets of Madrid with his camera, and his little affairs explained, all the documentary part is superlative.

The images have a very well-chosen soundtrack based Zarzuelas and songs of Celia Gámez, which allows a good idea of a vital Madrid,
