Storyline

Carol, a twelve-year-old Spanish-American girl from New York, travels with her mother to Spain in the spring of 1938, at the height of the Civil War. Separated from her beloved father, Carol arrives in her mother's home village and transforms the secretive family environment. Her innocence and rebellious nature drive her at first to reject a world that is at once new and foreign. But she soon journeys into adulthood through a friendship with Maruja, the village teacher, and a young local boy, Tomiche. Written by Film Movement

Nothing special, but worth watching
5 October 2002 | by (Vitoria, Spain) – See all my reviews

"El viaje de Carol" is one more in the series of Spanish films devoted to depict the Spanish Civil War from a child's point of view. However, this film does not reach the quality of similar-themed films such as "Secretos del corazón", possibly because the plot is diffuse and it fails to stick to any of the subplots. The best of the movie is certainly the cast, which includes the very best of Spanish veteran actors, but also a bunch of very promising young actors. Specially remarkable is the chemistry between Clara Lago, who plays Carol, and Juan José Ballesta, who plays Tomiche. In a nutshell, "El viaje de Carol" is good but not great, although it remains as a good watch for a rainy Sunday.
