film-making at odds during the Spanish civil war
30 October 2005 | by (Lleida, Catalonia) – See all my reviews

Well, this is an unpretentious documentary mixing reality and fiction in very special circumstances.

Old men and women are interviewed about events that took place 70 years ago! No kidding, they talk about their earliest memories on an orphanage during the Spanish civil war where... -surprise, surprise- they acted -as lead actors and actresses- on an a film by an amateur film-maker. The film was not destroyed so it is mixed effectively with images from present times in the same location to add atmosphere to the story.

The documentary investigates how the religious orphanage masters survived while on the republican side, how the poorest of kids enjoyed the time as if no war took place outside the orphanage walls and in the end how a blissful oasis for these kids could exist in a place and time where a civil war was taking place.

Worth seeing to get a glimpse of the human side of things.
