Storyline

Spain. The Basque Country. Sometime in the 90s. Josu Jon, a young member of a terrorist organization, has suffered an almost complete memory loss after being wounded in a shooting with the Spanish police. As he awaits for his trial, his condition is being treated at the prison hospital. Other inmates belonging to the same organization try to make him remember how brave a "gudari" -a Basque soldier- he is and how he must go back to the armed fight for the independence of their country as soon as he gets out of prison. Meanwhile, Xabier, a college professor who has been death-threatened by the terrorists due to his political views on the Basque situation, is having an affair with Francesca, a young psychologist who happens to end up trying to help Josu Jon recover his memory. A warm feeling of mutual affection grows between her and her patient. At a point, it doesn't seem to be clear whether Josu Jon really wants to recover his memory or rather forget forever who he actually is. Written by Julián Valcárcel-Carbonell

A disappointment...
20 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched the movie this evening, and the only reason for which I didn't leave the theater was because I was on my first date, and I thought it would be too rude to start off that way. I felt deeply disappointed about the movie, and I still keep thinking why the director, the script writers, the actors, etc., couldn't see they were filming a complete boutade about such a complex situation as that of the Basque Country. The movie just doesn't make any sense trying to combine (a) the portrait of a so-called terrorist (poor Oscar Jaenada) and his pathetic terrorist friends (the only connection with true terrorists must be that both groups must exchange the same unreal dialogs), (b) the complete change of attitude of what's supposed to be a brave university professor right after he receives the first warning from the terrorist group, (c) an absurd show, I guess, of Basque cuisine and traditions, and (d) the most unbelievable way of dying... It's a shame that such high percentage of the very few movies made in Spain about important issues such as terrorism, politics, corruption, etc. has to be so bad. But perhaps it's just because we don't understand what cinema is about, who knows...
