"Caracremada" ("Burnface" in Catalan), a nickname given by the Spanish Civil Guard to Ramon Vila Capdevila, reflects about the libertarian resistance against Franco's regime through the last active guerrilla fighter. In 1951 the CNT ordered the retreat of its militants; however Ramon Vila remained in the woods of inland Catalonia where he restarted the fight operating on his own. Written by
My big hobby is all about cinema about movies, I normally watch a NEW movie every night. I don't consider an expert, because I am not, but at least I can play in "amateur mode" with this subject.
I read the real history about Caracremada before watching the movie, and when I saw what I saw (after 60 minutes approx.) I just couldn't watch more, it was too much.
The story (HISTORY) has been modified and has become a political thing. You can feel, it only matches with the dark "Catalan Nationalism". In fact, after realising this issue I investigate who paid for this movie, who was the person behind, the company...surprise!! it was TV3. Apparently, this channel is the one subsidise by "Catalan Nationalism".
Anyway, the movie is so bad, you will be mad if you managed to stay 90 minutes in front of the screen/TV. This movie should be used by the police to get information from terrorists or something, I am sure the torture will be brutal.
This is probably the worst movie of 2010, no doubt.
