I just finished watching this film...hadn't found anywhere until now. Didn't disappoint me at all. This is a 2 hr long film and you never feel it. I wanted to see it because I know of the Salvador Puig Antich case & this film you do see the reality of what happened, Bravo to Manuel Huerga & Lluis Arcarazo, great job & also to the actors the performance was great! This is a story that make laugh, get mad, get happy, get sad....without knowing you involve all of your emotions.

Daniel Bruhl is a decent, contemporary actor from Germany. Perhaps this story is so distant & unrelated to me, the only thing left worthwhile to see is the mood building-up, & the abrupt but interesting relationship description between Salvador (Bruhl) & the prison guard (Leonardo Sbaraglia).

Stunning film, a great film on seeing how depraved men are. There are people here who deserve life less than the protagonist and I can see how powerful man's irrational and vengeance can be. Also, one of the few films with a visual scene of garrotting.

Pretty good political movie. Daniel Brühl did a very good job dealing with the Spanish language in the movie. Acting was OK though.

Maybe it lacks a bit of political content, a good movie otherwise.

worthwhile, but not great

A Spanish "Dead Man Walking", although unlike the previous movie, I actually felt sorry for this kid even though he was a gun-toting bankrobber, albeit for political reasons. The last 10 min of the movie are particularly moviing. I'm sure the movie had a great impact on Catalans when it came out. And garotting as a form of execution in the 70's?! How barbaric is that!

The best movie about intolerance I have seen in years. Fascism sucks!

DespuĂ©s de 2 años de intentar conseguir esta pelĂ­cula, finalmente logre verla y debo decir que la valiĂł la pena la espera, Daniel BrĂŒhl entrega una de sus mejores actuaciones (hablando un español perfecto) como Salvador joven activista que debe enfrentar la pena de muerte. El Ășnico detalle es que la mitad de la pelĂ­cula esta en catalĂĄn y no trae subtĂ­tulos!!!!!

I am not sure about the story (does 'revolution' really justify shooting at others?) but the movie is very good.

Que no dejen de hacer paliculas asi, para eso es necesario acudir a ver mas cine espa�±ol. Estremecedora y realista... Los actores impecables.

Beklijvende film met een hallucinante terechtstelling als orgelpunt. Oeps... het einde verklapt...

Excellent Daniel Bruhl

La nota que pongo es por la alucinante interpretacion de Daniel Bruhl como el anarquista catalan condenado en la epoca franquista. Los personajes son un poco radicales, no hay grises, solo negros y blancos, y quiza eso lastra el resultado final. A mi Tristan me da la risa como abogado, y el montaje ayuda a elevar a los altares al protagonista. Pero insisto en Daniel Bruhl... este papel lo borda!

Como pelĂ­ es media mala, aunque la parte final esta bien lograda. Como historia repugna que el 1974 se haya matado con Garrote vil.
Lo mejor de todo es el personaje del funcionario de prisioner, Actuacionzosa!

Impresionante la pelĂ­cula, aun ahora, cada vez que la veo me deja una congoja...en fin, lo Ășnico que se le puede reprochar, es que no se le da la importancia que se deberia al MIL.

Didn't know about Salvador at all... There are so many unforgivable bloodsheds in the past. Wondering how long we keep doing this.
