Well-acted political film which should be of universal interest.
2 March 2010 | by jrcadams-648-258678See all my reviews

I am not a Spaniard, but I know Spain quite well. I enjoyed this film, but I wondered why nobody has noticed the similarity to the fate of Federico García Lorca. I found it moving, but for non-Spanish speakers, I found the subtitles rather poor. At one point, when an officer called another officer to ask, "What are the charges against him," the reply was "I ignore them." A correct translation would be, "I don't know." That was just one example. On the other hand, the translators did as well as they could with "latifundio," a concept alien to outsiders.

I recommend this film to anyone concerned about justice. Very well acted.
