  1. irenemontero's rating of the film Songs for after a War

    A key film to understand the Spain of the Francoist regime and to see how popular culture, no matter how neutral-looking, always reflects the issues of its time.

  2. T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Songs for after a War

    An amazing juxtaposition of state-approved footage from the rise of Nationalist Spain after the Civil War, and popular songs often with anti-Nationalist lyrics and upbeat rythms. The result is a reflexive and satirical film which questions the official history during Franco's regime and the realities of a country in a post-war condition. This is image and sound exploited to perfection.
