Saura, Carlos
A musical drama set during the Spanish Civil War.
Husband and wife troubadours Paulino and Carmela are touring the countryside during the Spanish Civil War with their mute assistant, Gustavete, when they accidentally journey into rebel territory. They are arrested but are given a reprieve by an Italian Fascist commander who loves the theatre. He arranges a performance for his troops, bargaining with Paulino to stage a burlesque of the republic in exchange for the actors' freedom, but will the fiery and patriotic Carmela consent?
