Storyline

1808. The Napoleonic Army suffers its first defeat at the hands of a single man: a drummer boy who used the Montserrat mountains to echo his drums and send the enemy troops into a panicked retreat. When the news reaches Napoleon, he furiously orders the captain of the Imperial Guard to bring back the head of the young hero responsible for his army's defeat. The captain gathers together a band of his best and most deadly men and so begins the hunt to death of the soldier who was to become a legend. Written by Anonymous

Great panoramics. Not so great story, but entertaining to see another David vs Goliath.
10 December 2012 | by adr_1988See all my reviews

I wanted to watch 'Bruc' from the first time I saw in the news that a film about the Bruc legend was being filmed; it is only very seldom that we easily access films from outside the Angelo-Saxon sphere, but finding a film that is Catalan-specific (part of the production, the setting, the story) is seriously rare (this is setting aside those movies where you can see some kind of let's say touristy homage). But I was hoping for something more:

The plot has nothing much to it; Joan, a coal miner's son, defeated a whole French regiment by hiding in the sacred mountain of Montserrat, playing his drum and letting echo do the job. So the French can't bear the ridiculousness of their defeat and this French captain wants to go after him to restore l'honneur de la Patrie. This is the legend that everyone knows back home and that made me salivate for the picture. Then the film is about the hide and seek game that follows, with the poor coal miner's soon playing alone against the French, again. Oh, and there's a little romantic secondary plot: Joan is, of course, in love with a lady from the village. Classic.

Entertaining. Not a great movie, but still, it is nice to see how wit and brute force compete. Also, from time to time you get great panoramics of the mountain. Not that I'd watch a film for that only but the visuals also add up.
