Storyline

In 1939, in a French prison camp, José Garcés of the defeated Spanish Republican army raises the spirits of his fellow prisoners by telling the story of the year he was 8 years old, 1911, in a small town in northeastern Spain. He was a rascal, baffling his father, always in trouble, and in love with Valentina, a neighbor girl. On his roof top at night he sends semaphore messages to her. He writes poems. He gets them into trouble, killing her father's breeding pigeons. When the two families camp at a decaying castle, his tutor, a sympathetic priest, tells him about the most valiant men, the saints, the heroes, and the poets. Already a poet, he learns a lesson about being a hero. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

for the ending
27 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

You should know that this film is the first part of two films: "Valentina" and "1919 -Cronica del alba" (released the following year in 1983), based on Ramon J Sender's novel "Cronica del alba" written in exile. Both films begin with the end of the novel (so I am not spoiling anything) the context is 1939 when Spanish Republican refugees crossed the French border, many to be sent to the concentration camps on the beaches. The protagonist of the story dies there, the author of the book survived, and both entertained through their narratives. The first film recalls Pepe's memories: his childhood pranks, his respect for his mentor, and his crush for Valentina in 1911. The second film is set eight years later, 1919, and shows the birth of a Republican conscience, taking us up to 1936-39.
