  1. olivia's rating of the film Land and Freedom

    3.5 ... ending is excellent

  2. Eriugena82's rating of the film Land and Freedom

    Ultimately the film is a kind of tragedy, one in which Stalinist repression and internecine fighting amongst the Spanish Republicans played a huge part in preventing a Fascist victory. The kind of political analysis that is common in Loach's films. A simple and well-told story which nevertheless carries a strong emotional message. It's a wonder that more films haven't touched on the Spanish Civil War in all honesty.

  3. ZAZ's rating of the film Land and Freedom

    La mise en scène de la petite fille qui fouille dans les archives du grand-père et jette la terre de son amour espagnol sur son cercueil excepté, j'ai aimé le récit et le point de vue développé sur la guerre d'Espagne. Les scènes de débat sur la collectivisation des terres et l'opportunité de rejoindre ou non les brigades communistes sont particulièrement bienvenues et réussies. Eternel de la quête sens de l jeunesse

  5. dan's rating of the film Land and Freedom

    This accompanies and enlightens George Orwell's Homage to Catalonia.Orwell was also an Englishmen who fought for POUM. It is an interesting piece of history about socialism, international politics and let us wonder how they lost.Koach adds a romantic story and some debates about socialism.He also is sympathetic to a left or socialist vision, speaking about future hopes or depicting any nonsocialist as unidimensional

  6. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Land and Freedom

    3.5. Two thirds Che or JFK, without the monomania, one third movie clichés. The debate scene was brilliant.

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film Land and Freedom

    Probité politique et humaine exemplaire pour ce nouveau et indéniable chef-d'oeuvre du metteur en scène britannique Ken Loach... www.cinefiches.com

  10. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Land and Freedom

    A must-watch, I think. Despite some bleak moments through the end, the final scene of the film is still hopeful.

  11. ugurkalay's rating of the film Land and Freedom

  12. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film Land and Freedom

    Some people see the left view, socialist thoughts same as desire of a communist tyranny,it was a beautiful film about the difference between the two... .he is not so great at reflecting the psychology of war and creating pessimistic atmosphere.Loach is a director who is anxious to give message with cinema for this reason details of his characters are very superficial.İt wasnt an atmosphere cinema but good film.

  14. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Land and Freedom

    Storia acuta della guerra civile spagnola raccontata in maniera appassionata,in un misto di ideologie,realtà e sentimenti.Un dramma pieno di ricchezza a livello umano e storico,con un Loach magnificamente ispirato.Il regista propone scene bellissime e stimolanti,come la presa del villaggio,le discussioni sulla collettività,i canti corali e l'angosciante finale.Un grande,grandissimo lavoro.4*

  15. Robert Waeck's rating of the film Land and Freedom

  16. Percy's rating of the film Land and Freedom

    Brilliant all round. But that scene at the meeting in the village - no other film deals with the root problem of Left politics like this one scene.

  17. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film Land and Freedom

    Loach is on top form here as he weaves gold from Jim Allens script

  18. Tigrane Minassian's rating of the film Land and Freedom

  19. Louis's rating of the film Land and Freedom

    @ Vlad. I wouldn't say the CNT are portrayed unfairly. Maybe their role is slightly marginalised but they are never portrayed in a bad light in my opinion.

    Just watched "Land and Freedom" by Ken Loach. Very good. Must watch more of his films.
