| I wish someone had done something like this
Almost a Shakespearean, with play within play, the writers start from the opinion of Lorca's position during the War of 1936 to express a strong disagreement on Aznar's politics, and particularly on his decision to fight the Irak's War with the Americans. Clearly, political opinions are very personal, and one can approve the writers' opinion, or not. However it can't be denied that the construction of this self-made movie is quite good, as it is the use of cameras, fragmented when anguished feelings are present, smooth when in the script everything goes as it should (not very often, though).The actors are also very good, as most of Spanish less famous actors are. They have an excellent use of facial expressions and body language, not to speak of the voice, which is always deep and clearly well trained.

I must confess that, being a Lefty myself and an opponent of Berlusconi's government, I purchased this movie mainly because of its content, and I truly appreciated a certain dream in which Bush and Aznar were the only character. I laughed, because Berlusconi could easily take Aznar's place. I only wish that somebody did something like that in Italy too. We need this kind of culture.
