One of the most real fantasy films, the best one.
26 July 2001 | by gareth3esSee all my reviews

When I went to the cinema to see El corazon del guerrero, I knew I would like it, but I didn't know it would be my Spanish favourite movie, and one of my favourite movies. I have been expecting a movie like that since I was a child, and fortunately, has been an Spanish director who had the idea of making it. Why in Hollywood nobody had such a great plot? I'm very proud that this film is Spanish. Unfortunately, some critics were not capable of understand the intensity of the film, and they said it was a fantastic story about a crazy boy. But I think that is not true,this film is so really real, nobody can judge what happens in the mind of a misfit teenager, who thinks he's a hero. Nobody wants to understand him, but he continues dreaming, El corazon del guerrero is a beautiful poem to imagination, freedom and dreams, Why everything has to be seen or done as you've been teached? this is very serious, the adventures of Beldar must not been seen like a comedy/action sequences, because in that moments Beldar is struggling for his believes. Maybe this is the hidden secret. Fernando Ramallo does here the best performance of his career, his character,although aparently shy and coward, takes into a strong and dramatic one. Fernando is really credible here, when I saw it I think he was the real Fernando and not a character!, he's so natural, no one could play Ramon. The other cast is also superb, Joel Joan is great, Neus Asensi is awesome in her double role, the two of them very credible. The movie is also completed with entertaining action scenes, very well done, photographied and produced, and very credible special effects, that make real the fantasy world Ramon dreams. Daniel Monzon, director and scripter did a great job, greater if we know that this was his first work, is an excellent job for a debutant director to enter in a difficult and ignored genre like fantasy The score is amazing, the Spanish composer Roque Banyos make here his best work of art,a beautiful music that makes even greater this wonderful movie. El corazon del guerrero is the best fantasy film based on reality I've ever seen, is far away from that teenager movies or these destroy/action products, it contains a lot of poetry and nostalgia, is a masterpiece,a very perfect work of art, with dosis of humor that makes some moments funny, and real dramatic moments. It's a pity is not so well known out of Spain. I highly recommend this film to all seers that like fantasy genre and dreams that you want to be come true.
