Manuel Huerga chose Daniel Brühl, whose mother is Spanish, to play Salvador because he didn't want to tell a Spanish story, but a universal drama. This was the first time Brühl filmed in Barcelona, his place of birth. See more »
I don't disagree with the view that the subject is quite appropriate for a movie but displays quite gruesome violence, almost senseless for an artistic product. The scenes leading to the execution of the sentence are particularly distressing are particularly lengthy, the sentence itself is really perturbing for such a kind of movie. Other than that the movie is supposed to accurately reflect the violent times around 1970 in the Western World, and hopefully does achieve that target. Have to admit that, however, good acting and good direction are displayed throughout the movie, the main weakness of the movie can be found in the script only.
