Just watched this movie with three other atheist friends. The movie may have Catholic topics, and yes the peculiarities of the Spanish civil war but it is about anthropological universals present in human experience. It is appealing to all audiences. My friends described it a powerful and well done movie. I find it particularly appropriate as a reflection applicable to our current political and social fights. I went to the theater with low expectations since the critics were giving really bad reviews. I consider myself as having pretty high standards for movie quality, and frankly, I cannot make sense of the critics. Probably it is not a politically correct movie, so it is not surprise that critics unable to give up political correctness offer many straw man arguments. Beautiful photography, plenty of leitmotifs and cross-references, good acting. As a Spaniard living in the US I was glad to see a movie about the war that does not take sides.
