Necessary and instructive...
20 February 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This is the story of Dolores González (aka "Yoyes"), a woman who made it to the directive committee of ETA (the terrorist-separatist from Basque Country, Spain) in a time where the activities of the band might be justified in some way (the last years of Franco's dictatorship). Once the band began to murder civilians she decided to leave, she exiled in Mexico and after 12 years she came back to Spain to live and ordinary life. ETA shot her in the head in front of her little daughter: they considered that she was a traitor.

I think that a figure such as Yoyes' would have deserved to be filmed by a more expert director, because the débutant Helena Tabernas makes some narrative mistakes, the movie is certainly confusing and slow, some sequences are just pointless, and one or two of the actors weren't up to the job.

The movie went rather unnoticed at the time it was released. It wasn't a good idea to make a movie about a member of ETA when the PP (Popular Party) was governing the country (they were totally against the Basque separatism and, of course, against ETA). Anyway, I think it's a necessary movie that should be watched by anyone. Everything is not just black or white... you know what I mean.

*My rate: 6/10
