An interesting documentary about the controversial problem in the Basque country
23 December 2003 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

I went to see the film having read the critics, which stated that this movie could only be seen by pro-nationalists, hoping to get out of the cinema in the middle of projection. How wrong was I!!! Even though the movie is not completely objective, and it compares victims of terrorism to the families of the terrorists, there are very intelligent opinions made by very intelligent thinkers, politicians and journalists who are affected directly by the basque problem. There are also interesting comments made by those who are in favor of the basque autodetermination, including those who "support" terrorism. Medem has made a film where everybody has voice to criticise and to praise everything they want involved in this political and social problem, being partial in editing, therefore making people say things out of context. Content apart, the movie has beautiful images of basque shores and mountains and includes some images from other movies too. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who is concerned with the basque problem and/or with Spain.
