bitter story
13 November 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

an artistic company across Spain. in Civil War time. humor, nostalgic show slices, innocence, fear, hope, desire of survive, a kind of martyrs figures out of rule. a bitter story. not great. but warm. good performance, authentic atmosphere and a circle between tears and smile. sure, it is only drawing of a cruel event. not a photo, not a lesson. but its delicate art to suggest, to seduce, to tell a story, real or not but realistic, the play with nostalgic crumbs and small proves of heroic resistance to pressure of a dictatorship is interesting. a film about theater like fragile gun. as delicate form of protection. like ladder for a special form of escape. a song. a show. few shadows. ingredients of bitter story.
