I saw this movie at one in the morning in Argentina on TV. It was so fascinating that I couldn't sleep. I didn't see it from the beginning so I thought that the images were authentic(The film is filmed as if it was a documentary form the time of the Spanish civil war). But it The style, which could have easily been ugly or comedic, but was engaging, turned the movie form a tribute to those brave Spanish artists and poets to a manifestation of all the feelings that went into the war, the situation the second republic was in, the tragedy of it's fall, and more than anything else, the commitment, struggle,suffering and bravery of the ordinary people during the time of war.
