Trivia

In a scene late in the film Hemmingway is seen in a bar reading the July 22, 1944 edition of Collier's magazine which features Martha Gellhorn on the cover and the title of her wartime report "Over and Back". In fact the July 22, 1944 edition of Collier's features Hemingway's wartime report "Voyage to Victory" on the cover and has Gellhorn's one-page piece on page 14. The suggestion in the film is that only Gellhorn reported from Normandy. In fact they both reported from there. See more »

Goofs

Robert Capa uses a Leica camera with a Summar 5cm lens. This type of lens needs to be extended out from the camera to enable it to focus an image onto the camera's film. However, in the movie, the Leica's lens is shown in its collapsed, unusable position, even when Capa is taking pictures with it. See more »

The most grotesque misrepresentation of the Spanish Civil War
27 November 2012 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

There have been already a lot of them, but I could not believe my eyes or ears that something (even a TV movie) made in 2012 and supposedly directed by Philip Kaufman(who made "The Right Stuff"), edited by Walter Murch and with a cast of several big names involved, could be so wrong, so boring, so ridiculous and so infuriating. Even the newsreels are badly chosen (and distorted), with Franco appearing always much older than he was during the war. In fact, I cannot see the purpose of such a film, which I think is denigrating for everyone appearing as a character in it, from Hemingway to Dos Passos, from Joris Ivens to Orson Welles. I can only guess, but I imagine the Finland episode, although much shorter, may be as false as the Madrid ones. Only Nicole Kidman - as an old woman - and sometimes the score (not the period or "local" pieces or songs) are acceptable.
