Thirteen young women are sent to the firing squad early in the Franco regime, in retaliation for a political crime they were not involved in.
28 October 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

It is a very timely film to see in Spain now, in the middle of political arguments pro and con erasing most landmarks of the Franco regime and observing the legacy of the Loyalist government. Fortunately a right-wing, catholic character is introduced as a martyr of the fascist rule -so it will deplete the vicious arguments that COPE radio broadcast and the Catholic hierarchy launched against Pan's Labyrith last year. I am glad Zapatero's government purchased the rights to screen An Uncomfortable Truth in high schools nationwide. It should be wise if it considered to at least recommend Martínez-Lázaro's film. That would positively help to look back not in anger but in hope.
