Movie Review
7 May 2020 | by estebanlorenzoSee all my reviews

Fe de Etarras is a dark humor movie directed by Basque director Borja Cobeaga. The movie was released in 2017 as a Netflix Original and was the second Spanish movie to stream on the platform. It takes place during a hot summer on a small town in Spain which is no mentioned. Four members of the Basque terrorist organization, ETA, plan on leaving their mark while Spain's national soccer team makes its way to the finals of the world cup. However, they must wait for a phone call that will give them permission to carry on with their plan. As they wait for the phone call, they try to stay away from people to hide their identity and face many funny situations that add comedy to the movie. Having a good understanding of Basque history and recognizing the ETA is essential to understanding this movie. It is based on real life history and social acts that go back in time. Basque language and music are used throughout the movie to express the essence of the contemporary culture. Part of the comedy is the classic Basque vs. the rest of Spain social situation. The movie is dark humor and touched topics about racism between countries. If people find this uncomfortable, they should not watch the movie. Being a soccer fan really adds to the experience of the movie because it creates its own version of the 2010 World Cup. In general, the movie is really good and suitable for a mature audience. The characters are well built; however, the director shows very little information about their past which I think could have been done better. If you enjoy dark humor and are familiar with Spanish history, this is a movie that you might enjoy. Enjoying with some friends will definitely enhance the experience.
