Excellent historical film.
9 August 2016 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

"Isabel" is in its own right between the historic series of television. 39 episodes able to attract audience levels own times TVE monopoly, with an extraordinary historical rigor accompanied by an unusual care to make the story accessible to all viewers ... a cult that people could appreciate. For the first time we had a series capable of combining entertainment, culture and business without any of the three concepts overshadow the rest.

"Carlos, Rey Emperador" did not have to make great efforts to preserve success, a formula almost magical, the wet dream of any producer and / or director of Television network: a series that generates business and has no end in sight .

"La Corona Partida" links the two series, "Isabel" and "Carlos", putting the focus on Juana and Felipe. It's a great chance to fill gaps remaining and last pay homage to Isabel, Fernando Chacon, Cisneros and other characters. It's for followers of Isabel and Carlos Emperor series. Some scenes are sparing nothing, are paintings from the Prado Museum, but in some cases the lack of budget is evident that even reveal savings scenarios, such as when they are in Flanders and the landscape is Castilian Spanish.

But the script is very attached to the book, with excellent dialogues, and the formidable performances by R. Sancho and especially bright Irene intimate character that gives the film School. "The Crown Game" does not disappoint you, entertains you and you catapults not only in history, but the protagonists.

It has good script, excellent performance of all actors: major, minor, until Poncela-perfect. Its costumes, lighting, decoration, exterior, historical is the best.

It is one of the few films in which you engage and live as if you were there. It is therefore a great historical film, adventure, reflection and political theory, strong drama and good sentimental story for those who remain on the branches but will leave satisfied and slightly pricked.
