Very good movie on the Spanish Civil War. Personal dramas intermingled with a very accurate picture of the worst thing that ever happened to Spain in the last century.

From what I saw when I was not asleep, the scenery was pretty and the acting was pretty good. I blame the 3 hour Civil War Literature class preceding this movie for not being able to keep my eyes open or even finish it.

Un pueblo perdido en la España franquista. Un pueblo donde se vive con miedo, horrorizados por una Guardia Civil revanchista, brazo ejecutor de venganzas y envidias personales.
Unos personajes muy marcados en su caracter, bien por el miedo, el odio, el colaboracionismo... Y un gran personaje: la montaña, refugio de ideas sin exito, de esperanzas sin solucion, de negar lo evidente.
Y otros cliches tradicionales, como la taberna-tienda, el herrero, el potentado, el chivato, el anarquista, el indiferente, el delator...
Todo eso mezclado, destilado con imagenes impactantes en cuanto a belleza descarnada, y unas interpretaciones dignas, a pesar de que Lucia Jimenez y Juan Diego Botto no pegan demasiado como principales.
Debe verse para poder reflexionar, si quiera cinco minutos, acerca de lo que hace tan poco tiempo ocurria no tan lejos de nuestras casas...

Gran película. Cómo me gusta Lucía Jiménez en esta peli y Juan Diego Botto está increible.
Que no nos vuelvan a quitar la sonrisa nunca más...

A fairly conventional story if one is familiar with the long line of narratives, both in literature and film, that engage the lives of a small town's inhabitants living under a totalitarian regime, except substitute Franco's Spain for any Nazi-dominated country (perhaps the bulk of such narratives covering the period of the 1940s). But this does not mean that this movie is not worth watching...the cinematography is beautiful, the acting is superb much of the time (not always emotionally grabbing), and it helps to watch a movie about a country whose dictatorship is largely forgotten by most people. My main complaint is that the love story between "Manuel" and "Lucia" often undercuts the seriousness of the situation. Juan Diego Botto's performance is frequently too cheery and his character's sense of idealism is one-dimensional.
