The nationalism can be and should be understood. What do I mean by that? In our period of globalization there is a danger of cultural disappearance. Like the wife of the one of the Basques being in jail said, that he is very kind at home, and it sure he had serious motives to involve in terrorist acts. I believe that, he had serious reasons.
There was mentioned that may be this aggressive movement appeared because of the fear of loosing it own cultural identity. I do believe that the methods used by ETA are wrong, but the underlying cause should be taken in consideration.
It is interesting that there are not used translations in the movie, so, knowing English and Espanol, and not understanding Euskara, I was initially a little bit frustrated. But, after that I realized that this movie was dedicated to all the Basques, and to each of them.
There are no outside comments in this film, only the comments of participants. And it was fine.
