Storyline

The story is set during the South American Wars of Independence. Simón Bolivar, the liberator, has escaped from Spanish custody with the aid of an idealistic Spanish officer, Captain Montserrat. The Spanish commander, Colonel Izquierdo ('left' in Spanish), threatens Montserrat with torture to find out where Bolivar can be recaptured. Izquierdo decides that this will probably not yield the information he wants and instead has six entirely innocent people brought into headquarters: The six are Salas Ina, a prosperous businessman; Arnaldo Lujan, a wood carver who makes the statues of the saints, Matilde, a mother who left two small children at home alone while she went to market; Juan Salcedo Alvarez, an actor from Cádiz; Felisa, a pretty girl whom Izquierdo finds attractive, but she only wants more to eat and the death of the Spaniards; and Ricardo, a boy who only wants to know that Bolivar is safe. Izquierdo tells these six people that they have precisely one hour to persuade ... Written by Anonymous

An unforgettable program
16 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Montserrat for the first time as a teenager and was haunted for weeks by the story; indeed I have searched TV listings for it ever since, to no avail. It may have been the first time in my young life that I realized there were truly heartless people on this planet. I believe the events portrayed are fictional; still, the severe testing of one's convictions, the callous disregard for the lives and feelings of others, the cowardice and courage in the face of death by young and old alike, were themes played out in such convincing fashion that the viewer can't help but come away introspective, moved.

I sincerely hope that PBS or someone will air this presentation again, with sufficient promotion to get the attention of the viewing public (and so that I don't somehow miss it).
