Trivia

Spanish composer Roque Baños is the author of the music soundtrack for the film, but the piece that sounds during the climactic last scene was substituted with a march called 'La madrugá' used in many Easter week processions in Spain, giving it an undercurrent of suffering, inevitability of defeat and and end-of-the-road feeling. Baños has never been happy that the music he composed for the scene was not used, although it is included in the soundtrack cd. See more »

A good history film
6 September 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

XVII Spanish Century is too rich to be told in two hours and a half, and that's what the film has tried. Perhaps too many characters that unable us to be identified with them. Alatriste is too many things in just one: the brave, the hard, the rebel, the lover, the good father... but far from us. I don't think it is Viggo's problem. If you read the novels you will find the same lack. Although we have expected more of this film, it would be unfair to say that this film is not worthy watching it. Actors are great, also wigs and customs (sometimes Spanish people cannot forget them without wigs!). Battles and photography are excellent. The films' atmosphere is much more better than other history films, the fog, the use of light. Go, watch it and make your opinion!
