5 January 2001 | by (madrid, spain) – See all my reviews

This film, as far as I know, is unique in being the only filmed biography about a Chief of State (not a dictator) who was alive in the moment of its making. It is an extraordinary document of the life of a man who gave away all his life to the service to his country and was capable of lifting Spain up from the ruins of the inevitable Civil War and turning it into one of the ten main world powers. Sáenz De Heredia combines extremely well the ample archive footage (perfectly accompanied by the excellent voice-overs, especially the narrator Ángel Picazo´s) with the present-time conversations with personalities such as Franco himself or journalist/ambassador Manuel Aznar. It is obvious that the movie was made with real loving care by its director and is not only a simple commitment. Those who´ve never got to know the genuine Franco (not the completely false and grotesque figure depicted by many misinformed people) should watch it with true attention.
