Don't waste your money and eyesight on this propaganda film.
10 May 2011 | by migrogiSee all my reviews

Just a manipulation of history, again, by the Opus Dei. Don't forget many cabinet ministers in the Franco governments of the 60s were members of this "sect" and acknowledged ("enterado") the dictator's many death sentences in those years. As for the film and reconciliation, the forget the epilogue: 40 years of forgiveness? It seems that those years do not exist for the film-maker...For the director the war had no consequences, it is an "unfinished" film and totally biased: why the Spanish left, especially the rural working classes were so against priests and church? No look at this background of starvation for the poor and privileges for the church. In fact, many priests participated in the rebeld side with their guns at the side... Ask my parents about"forgiveness" in Spain during those Opus years... As for JoseMari... I bet he would be laughing at it!
