Film details

From the director of Battle of Algiers and starring Gian Maria Volontè alongside Eusebio Poncela, José Sacristán and Ángela Molina. This story of the assassination by ETA of Colonel Carrero Blanco, Spanish dictator Franco’s right hand man, comes with heavyweight credentials. Less well known than Pontecorvo’s 1960s classic, this is a taut thriller that offers a complex set of positions in relation to what some called an act of terror and others political resistance.
