Arising out of the horror of the Spanish Civil War, a candidate for canonization is investigated by a journalist who discovers his own estranged father had a deep, dark and devastating connection to the saint's life.
A young journalist long ago rejected by his now aged and dying father finds himself investigating one of his father's former friends, a candidate for canonization. Uncovering the two men's complicated relationship from childhood through the horrors of the Spanish Civil War unveils a compelling drama filled with passion, betrayal, love and religion. An action packed story set during a murderous time in history that ultimately serves the present by revealing the importance and timeless power of forgiveness. Written by
A good story about hope and forgiveness, against all odds
If this movie was not about the origins of a controversial institution (Opus Dei), and a controversial episode in European history (the Spanish Civil War), people would not have said many of the things that have been said. Encontrarás Dragones is not the official biopic of San Josemaría Escrivá, though everything that is narrated about him in the movie has a historical support. The movie is well directed, the photography is excellent and it's recreation of pre-war Madrid is simply astonishing. Besides, it is a story that compels viewers to consider topics such as forgiveness, love, hope, and goodness. A movie everyone should watch
