Complex and overlong crime drama dealing with two Inspectors investigating three murdered people who belonged to Fifth column
29 November 2016 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Ambitious drama with acceptable atmosphere and nice production design by Gil Parrondo , though falls flat and is regularly developed . Spanish drama/thriller/suspense movie about killings , treason and political intrigue . Madrid 1942 , in Retiro Park happens a murder , as two Police Inspectors Ángel Barciela (Carmelo Gómez) and Paco Valduque (Ángel Andrés López) carry out the assignment to discover the culprit . A bit later on , other two murders take place . They find out the three killed men were hidden tenants -during Spanish civil war- from Buendía family formed by Enrique (Miguel Palenzuela) , Pilar (Montserrat Carulla) and their sons : Julia (Emma Suárez) and Luis Buendía (Aitor Merino) . The three lodgers belonged to the ¨fifth column¨ from the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) when Madrid was really besieged . Soon after , Ángel Barciela falls in love for Julia Buendía whose former boyfriend (Tony Cantó) , a communist militant , was killed during the deadly war .

This is an acceptable film that packs thrills , suspense , love stories , twists and turns . Thrilling film with intrigue , plot twists but slow , deliberately paced and ultimately turns out to be a little boring . The story fails when deals with historical-political deeds , including a flawed , confuse , embarrassing screenplay and surprising finale . Based on the homonymous novel by the politician Joaquin Leguina , whose title is taken from a poem by Luis Cernuda and with script by Ricardo Franco , Pilar Miró and uncredited Ángeles González Sinde . Developed by means of flashbacks set in three periods that interweave the difficult story : during the Spanish Civil war in Madrid siege , the forties (1942) and early fifties (1952) . The picture bears some remarkable resemblances to ¨Beltreneros¨ by Miró in which there is also a resourceful professional who investigates crimes and he is keen on a beautiful Femme Fatale . Nice acting all around , Cármelo Gómez and Emma Suarez make a perfect couple , and deliver a deep chemical . Although the picture gives more importance the unconvincing role of Police Inspector than the calculating , cold woman with whom he has a loving relationship . The picture contains a lot of inter-courses , nude men-women and love scenes in soft-core style . Including a spotless pictorial cinematography by Javier Aguirresarobe and a willingness , almost perfect of the elements of each shot , every sequence , every space ; being rightly filmed on location in Madrid . Aguirresarobe subsequently would make a prestigious career in Hollywood . Here stands out the emotive and inspired musical score by the great José Nieto .

The film gives a detailed description of the ¨Fifth column¨. It is any group who undermine a larger group—such as a nation or a besieged city—from within, usually in favor of an enemy group or nation. The activities of a fifth column can be overt or clandestine. Forces gathered in secret can mobilize openly to assist an external attack. This term is also extended to organized actions by military personnel. Clandestine fifth column activities can involve acts of sabotage, disinformation, or espionage executed within defense lines by secret sympathizers with an external forcé . In fact , Emilio Mola, a Nationalist general during the Spanish Civil War, told a journalist in 1936 that as his four columns of troops approached Madrid, a "fifth column" of supporters inside the city would support him and undermine the Republican government from within . The term was then widely used in Spain . Ernest Hemingway used it as the title of his only play, which he wrote in Madrid while the city was being bombarded, and published in 1938 in his book The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories.

The motion picture was professionally directed by Pilar Miro . In 1982 Pilar was designated General Director of Cinema . She was an expert filmmaker of Television episodes and occasionally for cinema , getting some successes , such as ¨La Petición¨, ¨The dog in the manger¨ or ¨El Perro del Hortelano¨, ¨The bird of happiness¨ , ¨Werther¨ , and especially ¨The Cuenca crime¨ that had big hit . But also had some flops as ¨Hablamos Esta Noche¨ ,¨Beltreneros¨ that failed at the box office . "Your Name Poisons My Dreams" resulted to have a limited success , in spite of a very good cast cast , luxurious set production and enjoyable atmosphere . Rating : 6/10 , decent and passable .
