The hard life of miners
7 April 2002 | by (Manresa, Catalonia) – See all my reviews

"Pídele cuentas al rey" tells the story of an Asturian miner who decides to walk from Asturias to Madrid for being received by the king of Spain, and then ask him for the right of all the workers to have a worthy job.

The director, José Antonio Quirós, has a lot of experience making documentaries, in this movie there are some real scenes which show the hard life of the Asturian miners, who have to work in dangerous conditions. During the long walk, we can see other unlucky characters like wanderers and illegal immigrants.

Antonio Resines plays the lead role with his habitual naturalness; the movie sometimes is a bit too much long, but it's entertaining.
