What is that guy talking about?
4 June 2001 | by (A Coruña, Spain.) – See all my reviews

OK. I just write here because I`ve just seen the (until now) only review, and I just can´t allow that guy to represent my country. Nowadays in Spain there are few people who thinks that Franco was not a dictator, or that have a positive vision of that tyrant. This movie is one of the most funny flicks I´ve ever seen, because it´s like a comic telling how the Generalisimo battled against the Forces of Red Evil and guided Spain to magnificent times of peace and prosperity. The reality?: Franco was an ambitious general that took advantage of an age of commotion to obtain the power, and just kept it by serving the interests of the rich and powerful, as he kept Spain in a permanent age of backwardness and decadence. That´s the truth to the 95% of my countrymen, at least. And this film is just the pathetic example of the cheap propaganda he used to kept the power. I mean, in Spain we don´t recall the figure of Franco with anger; I think slight would be a more appropriate word. So, if anyone is reading this (which I doubt), just be sure that, to my country, Francisco Franco WAS a dictator, and this films truly describes him only as "Perry Mason" described the real legal world (That´s right: nothing to do with reality).
