An epic history of forgiveness and betrayal in the Spanish civil war
25 March 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

The movie portrays a time when fascism, communism, Nazism, nationalism, anarchism... fought each other in Europe in one of the most turbulent times in Western history. Amid the scenes of war, a priest fights with himself (his dragons) and forgives all the pain suffered. A movie like "The Pianist" or the "Schindler's List". I felt amazed by this movie. It will make you cry an also feel the joy of forgiveness. The battle sequences are well recreated and the actors make and incredible interpretation. The soundtrack is beautiful (composed by Stephen Warbeck: "Shakespeare in Love"). Roland Joffe definitively has returned to an epic drama similar (and better in my opinion) to that of "The Mission". I think it's one of the best movies I have seen this year so far.
