Dangeorus days...
9 May 2006 | by rainking_esSee all my reviews

This is that sort of movies that you shouldn't watch if you don't have some knowledge about the time and the facts story is about (dictator Franco have just died and everyone was so nervous). Those were strange and dangerous days, there's no doubt about it. A group of left-winged lawyers were killed in cold blood for some of those fascists who wanted Spain to remain under the dominion of the rich, the Army, and the Catholic church. It's quite a good document that perfectly shows the way the people of both sides acted and thought.

As for the cinematographic significance, Juan A. Bardem filmed some good films ("Muerte de un ciclista"), but "Siete días de Enero" wasn't that remarkable. Some of the characters look like caricatures (specially the fascist ones), and there were some non-professional actors, what's always a bad idea.

Well, as I said before this is more like a historical document...

*My rate: 6/10
