This documentary does the admirable job to try to upset the old establishment keeping an eye on some public persons, places and events which are about to be forgotten by all of us in modern Catalonia: 20 years on this people will only exist in film.
The action focuses in post-war Barcelona (40's 50's), old people is interviewed and through their memories, the usual NODO -news and propaganda from Franco's dictatorship- from the times illustrates what they remember. One event in particular is so obscure that the director felt the urge to recreate it with actors to get us an appropriate idea of what went on. The documentary tells us about the double standards, the misery and the hypocrisy of power players of that era. One person in particular -Juan Antonio Samaranch - even got into the top of the International Olympic Committee which concluded that Barcelona hosted the olympics in 1992. But this is not the point, the point is to expose by word-of-mouth from different sources the dirty laundry during the 40s in the not-so-repressed Barcelona.
