Trivia

The final chorus, singing 'Que sera, sera', hide a cinematographic reference to similar scenes in, at less, two other films: The Book Thief (2013) initial chorus singing 'Kampflied der Nationalsozialisten'; and Cabaret (1972) scene with nazis and people singing 'Tomorrow belongs to me' in some moment of the film. The three scenes start with a beautiful face of a child/young, singing in a quite fervent manner; follows a slow zoom-out over the rest of the singers. Intention or meaning of the similarities and differences between the three scenes are not documented, even not recognized by Isona Passola when asked about it. See more »

Slick Production, but Lacks Substance
26 April 2015 | by spirit-of-1969See all my reviews

It starts off a little all over the place, but in the end it's to the director's credit that he tries to fit in so many devices--political speeches, a conversation in a cab, traditional doc interviews, some weird guy singing Andalus style and a series of skits. The skits acknowledge that they're obvious metaphors--which is good--but they still rarely bring home the points they're making better than the talking heads, and the choice to use non-actors hurts more than it helps. Overall, the film is consistently engaging and does a nice job pairing beautiful shots of Catalan countryside with the post-modern interview space.

Substantively, though, L'Endema leaves a lot to be desired. Its title implies a serious discussion of what "the day after" independence would be like, but there is no discussion here, just a parade of interviewees promising us everything will be great. Not even one anti-independence expert is interviewed, giving the impression that the talking heads are only tearing down strawmen and not engaging with the other side's serious arguments. And that's probably the case, as the filmmakers gloss over recognition, disposition of Spanish state property, the potential flight of non- Catalan residents of Catalonia and other thorny issues. It's not that a doc can't argue a point, but when you complete neglect any counterargument, your limit your audience to the already converted.
