This is a documentary on Francisco Franco and the Spanish Civil War. It's not like a typical documentary in which the documentary shows scenes and footages as well as people commenting but rather a sort of a film with poor editing with waves of boastaring of the "great and glorious leader who saved Spain". It's unique in the sense that it shows lots of great footage of the war and the movements surrounding the war. Although there is a constant glorification of the dictator Francisco Franco, it does a good job of showing the side of the opposition without demonizing them. The film shows amazing footage with songs of the day as the sound track as well as speeches of the old leaders. Think "Triumph of the Will" with a little less quality and a lot less propaganda.
