A hero who struggled for the Independence of Catalonia
22 April 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This is a film anyone who wants to learn about Catalan history must see. The story of one of our heroes, from a country who had one of the most ancient Parliaments in Europe, where to achieve this heroic position is not necessary to kill any man. Macià was a patriot. He was a colonel in the Spanish army until he was forced to choose between Catalonia, the nation without state in Spain since 1714 when we lost a war that made us become part the Spanish state, and Spain. Catalonia, with its capital Barcelona worldwide known because it was where the Olympic Games took place in 1992. The film takes place from the 1905 until 1933. Macià started as a Spanish soldier and ended becoming a convinced Catalan pro-independence. He struggled always with honor to get the freedom for our country. Unfortunately, the dictatorship in Spain with Franco hid his portrait. Nowadays, his character has been recovered, when our autonomy is being threatened by the Spanish state and many people feel trapped in a state that has never clearly understood our identity.

SPOILERS

The portrait of a man who was famous all over Europe when he tried to finish with the dictator Primo de Rivera in Spain.

ENDING OF THE SPOILERS

A man who everyone in Catalonia loved because he truly loved his country and who believed that a nation with a language, a history, a culture, a literature deserves to have its own state. A nation which still keeps its language but it is not so well known as other countries like Scotland.
