Trivia

At a certain point (rather early) in the movie, the song "Eimaste Dyo" ("We Are Two") by Mikis Theodorakis is heard, not with Greek lyrics though. The song was written during (and lyrically refers to) the common imprisonment (and the tortures accompanying it) of Mikis Theodorakis and Andreas Lentakis, during the dictatorship period in Greece (1967-1974).

Time travel into Spanish Democratical Transition
15 September 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

By watching Salvador you can move less than thirty years back and discover or remember, depending on your age, Spain during the latest days of Franco's regime. Those were times where things were changing, but to some others of them it had to take longer.

Salvador Puig Antich will be forever remembered as the last person to be executed in Spain. In the movie, the anarchist Puig Antich is played by the German actor Daniel Brühl. The fact that his mother is Spanish allows him to act speaking in both Spanish and Catalan. Nonetheless, one of the greatest achievements of the film is that it shows how both languages are used in Catalonia. Daniel Brühl's performance is flawless, you could sense his fears, passions,...

The rest of the cast, including Leonardo Sbaraglia or Leonor Watling among many others, adds up quality to the film.

"Salvador" is a great movie. 9 / 10.
