A movie that dares say something we might not want to recognize.
I do not want to spoil the movie because it is definitely worth watching.
The music is excellent, the photography and location is magnificent. The acting is dead on. Even some beautiful Spanish eye candy can be seen.
I found this movie in HBO NOW in the action section, but I guess it can be categorized as a comedy of sorts.
It deals with a very hard subject, one to which Spanish are not foreign to. Terrorism and the humanistic side of both sides of the story. As incomprehensible and difficult to swallow it might be.
The final phrase in the movie by the senior survivor might be enough to award investing the time to enjoy it in its entirety.
I know that my fellow Americans are not too keen on subtitled movies, let alone one that deals with an issue to which we feel we hold an exclusivity (suffering, terrorism, justice, etc.) but if you can, try to enjoy it.
I sincerely didn't follow the subtitles so I do not know how accurate is the translation and since this is Spanish from Spain and Argentina, it has to be well understood to catch its subtle comedic value.
It is a very well made movie worthy of a big screen and popcorn. It will definitely jerk your heart and maybe, just maybe provide a couple of smiles if you are capable of keeping an open mind.
