5.0 out of 5 stars Moving Story of Forgiveness and Redemption Set Around the Spanish Civil War, 28 Mar. 2012
This review is from: There Be Dragons [DVD] (2011) (DVD)
This little known true story I found very watchable. Two childhood friends lives take different, but not completely seperate paths. One seeks to help peoples lives better, the other for ever struggling with himself and making the wrong choices. Through flashbacks the son of the errant friend uncovers his father's and friend's past.

For the subject the filming is excellent as is the acting with strong characters and I was gripped all the way through to the end to see what the answer to my curiosity would be.

The backdrop to the story is the Spanish Civil war which pitted Facist against Communist and family against family. the Spanish Civil War has been much overlooked due to the more widespread and brutal World War which followed just a few years later, and this film has done much to highlight this painful time in Spain's history in a sympathetic way. The film's underlying message of forgiveness and redemption reached a powerful conclusion at the very end of the film.
