Carlos Iglesias surprises us with a good movie and a great visual film
20 May 2012 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Carlos Iglesias's second film (directed, written, produced and starred), who is one of the hopes of Spanish cinema. It tells the story of "Alvaro", a political commissar of PCE found in the USSR when it comes their way a group of Spanish. Children are exiled by the war, accompanied by their caregivers, among which "Paula" is (Esther Regina), who in reality is something different from what it seems.

Visually, the film is amazing and extraordinary. Start with mixed securities that the exodus of Republicans who left the country with good drawings of these children could be exiled. Except for the talks, which constantly exchanges planes, does not leave the camera steady. He makes tracking shots, short sequence shots. Everything, and therefore, provides a huge wealth to the film. If we add the beauty of the outdoors and the atmosphere and maintained at millimeter photography, it gives you a visual marvel.

But the main thing is that while dealing with the Spanish Civil War, does so in a way that has rarely been done: not criminalize one side and praise to another. It is clear that for the first time, there is a pamphlet of attempted compensation to the Republican side. What transmits this film are the ravages of war causes a human being, how to be upset of a mind under the pressure of having to choose: either victors or vanquished, without intermediate forging a prejudice that continue to this day: the two Spain.

The truth is that Carlos Iglesias has only directed two films, and has much work ahead, but somehow, his style, (keeping distances and respect) is reminiscent of Clint Eastwood, especially in his later works: sensitive, highly charged dramatic blows delivered at the end of which is played with the music (which in this film is a beautiful reminiscent of Soviet Russia). C. Iglesias can become one of the great Spanish director.
