Storyline

At the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, the nun Maria is forced to flee her convent. She takes refuge in a brothel, until it is liberated by a woman's anarchist group. Maria joins the group and eventually goes to the front. The women's group faces the problems of fighting not only the nationalists, but also factions on the left seeking to impose a more traditional military structure.

The short summer of anarchy
14 February 2002 | by (São Carlos-SP,Brasil) – See all my reviews

A tender and cruel film. Paradoxical? No when a real story is told. And the story occurs in Spain during the civil war. For this short summer of anarchy, in the most beautiful of the popular feats of the century, the director conducts an affectionate and anarchical look. He make us to remember that in revolutionary periods, revolutionaries are needed. But does not permit that we forget the monumental inefficiency of anarchism.
