Excellent Movie!.
6 December 2008 | by islandsharpSee all my reviews

This movie wants to be a reflection of the heroism that people(Willingly or not)had to have in those turbulent times in order to survive. Its message praises values such as Honor,Gentlemanly, Boldness, commitment and compassion. All of these ingredients Making this film not quite popular in nowadays Spain; a country currently drifting away from the principles that made it Great in the past. I won't enter to discuss its technical quality in comparison with lavish Hollywood productions of the time. We are talking about a product made with a considerable effort in a country smashed by a civil war between Communists an Nationalists which had ended just three years before, leaving a million of dead and a whole nation in ruins. After that, the government was put in to an effort to spread positive values in films like this.

Watch this movie if you ever have the chance; You won't regret it!.
