This is the most thorough, balanced and entertaining video i have seen about the Basque question. It doesn't avoid any of the topics that make of this ancient people's history such a contentious subject for debate. Instead, he interviews almost all actors in Euskal Herria today, providing a complete array of perspectives. Very instructive and entertaining at the same time. The camera is captivating and the editing is very effective. The music by Mikel Laboa is out of this world, and gave me goose-bumps.
The only problem is that it is apparently done for an audience that knows a lot more about Basque history than the average foreigner like me, so at times it was hard to follow the chronology. In fact, i watched the longer (almost 7 hours...i think this was the TV series) version from a Spanish friend, and it helped me understand the movie better.
