All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Its technique is that of the film document, but Hemingway's narrative makes it a definitely propagandist effort.

The film develops parallel connections between farmers creating an irrigation system and civilian defenders of the besieged Spanish republic.

A lion's share of the fault lies in the narration, the kind of one-sided screen advocacy journalism that has resurfaced in contemporary non-fictions and based-ons.

Serves as both a look at the humanity of the Loyalist followers and as an historical footnote to a significant time in the modern history of Spain.
