The movie takes place in Barcelona in early 20's. The movie begins with an espectacular what-it-used-to-look-like overview of the Catalan capital. The films is beautifully shot, and details are well taken care of, such as fashion, cars, street cars, building, decorations, and even the beginning of the construction of Sagrada Familia, however the director takes too much joy into twisting the camera. By the same token, some fighting scenes are confusing by the lack of stability of the picture.
The plot keeps the audience intrigued and lets them judge who the good guys and vilants of the story are.
What the movie puts unabashedly on the table is a social denunciation: who wants war and why.
