Franco, that Man
31 January 2005 | by chesterfield_fosSee all my reviews

This movie is one of the best to show the former Spanish head-of-state. There are various biographies, mainly by English, that portray the General in his most negative aspects. This movie at least shows the qualities of him, not as a governing figure, but also as a human being that was raise as a child and became a hero in the War with Morocco. It is not only of Franco, but also of Spanish history in the beginning of the 20th century. It also shows the personal and emotional aspects of the wars and some acts of heroism. It also denounces the inabilities of the 2nd Republic, which is sometimes held as a pure democratic government, when in fact was not. This movie has many parts that show different sides of the General and how the Spanish history of the time affected him. However, the main point of this movie was made for showing what Francisco Franco really was: a man.
