introduction in heart of a time
it is a honest film. and that is its central virtue. it seems like many other stories about fight against evil and charm of good guys. but its message is universal. and part of each period. a film who mixed historical details and fiction for give soul to a world. a mirror, a testimony, really different by Roma or Spartacus series but more gentle and precise with aspects of Antique universe. in fact, a form of smart propaganda. with an inspired cast, with emotional pieces, with nice music and a very old recipes. a kind of history lesson, boring in few moments, fantastic in others but realistic for its honest desire to present truth more than a magic moment.Hispania is not soap - opera or blockbuster. it is introduction in heart of a time. in the voice of a different reality of life, death, sacrifice and love. a map for study Spanish soul, far from corrida or vine. interesting, intense and smart.
