Trivia

At a certain point (rather early) in the movie, the song "Eimaste Dyo" ("We Are Two") by Mikis Theodorakis is heard, not with Greek lyrics though. The song was written during (and lyrically refers to) the common imprisonment (and the tortures accompanying it) of Mikis Theodorakis and Andreas Lentakis, during the dictatorship period in Greece (1967-1974).

User Reviews

very naive
23 March 2007 | by sal_paradiseSee all my reviews

i can't help wondering what the point of this film pamphlet was. it seemed to veer towards naive heroism in the beginning and at the end again, meanwhile completely neglecting a discussion of what set these people apart from other 'normal' terrorists. and then we get a subplot of the last death penalty dealt in Spain with this kid who of course doesn't deserve to be murdered at the hands of the state, but who does really. it fails on this level as well as a level of human relationship, using the story of the guard merely to make a point of how the revolution lives on.

so i felt really ambiguous and detached from the film, which seemed so uncommitted to an involved and deep discussion of its story.
