Well done and in an interesting location about an interesting time. The place is Tetouan, Morocco, and the time is 1956, but the protagonist is trying to find out what happened there in 1936. I'm pretty familiar with the Spanish Civil War, so I expected there would be ugly revelations (it was an ugly time, with the Leftist against the Fascists, with very strong feelings on both sides). The movie seemed as if it could have been a TV series because it seemed to have been noticeably edited, but I still enjoyed it. I've also seen another good Spanish movie, "Palms in the Snow". But before either of them I saw the excellent Spanish TV production, "The Time In Between" (El Tiempo Entre Costuras), and I suspect these were follow-on productions that were (sadly) cut to movie length. I'm hoping for more of the same, but more fully realized.
