Trivia

An important part of the movie is set in the town of Salamanca, being the Main or Major Square (Plaza Mayor) widely relevant. It was actually shot in that very square, although the vegetation shown had to be added as in the moment of shooting the square had none. See more »

A needed review of the beginning of the Spanish Civil War
10 November 2019 | by felixtarridaSee all my reviews

We have watched dozens of films about Spanish Civil War, mostly trying to depict a complete portrait of this three-yers-old, a million people dead, bloody war. Unamuno is just an excuse to narrate the birth of fascism as full scale freedom-killer. No explicit violence makes even more hurting what happens behind the scenes. I watched it yesterday Nov 9th and while I'm writing there is one hour left to find out if today's polls will confirm that the heritors of these fascists ultra-catholics are back.
