Trivia

The events of the movie are based on real stories that Emilio Aragón heard in the middle 90's during the production of Médico de familia (1995) TV series. Veteran actors who did guest appearances in the family show told experiences lived in the Francoist Regime (1939-1975) in the set about the life in these years. Aragón compiled all it later, mixing to create the plot of the movie. See more »

Goofs

When the company goes to play to the theater in the small town, part of the act is the Sabre Dance, from Khachaturian's Gayane. However, Gayane was completed in 1942, while the action in the film takes place at most in March 1940, one year after the end of the Spanish Civil War. See more »

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.
