The Anarchist’s Wife

This film was pretty focused on the romance and didn’t have as much of the politics or history of the Spanish Civil War as I had expected. Also, the film didn’t explore Manuela’s (The Anarchist’s Wife) politics really at all to the point that it was unclear if she even had any. The daughter Paloma was actually a much more dynamic and interesting character.

It was a good romance/drama, but not a great radical film.
