A restrained story about a 12-year-old tomboy from New York City who suddenly finds herself on the periphery of the Spanish civil war. Clara Lago plays Carol, a quiet but willful girl whose American father, a commercial airplane pilot, has volunteered for the International Brigades; her elegant Spanish mother returns to her native village with Carol in tow. Showing the savagery of war from the eyes of a child is a well-worn conceit, but this 2001 Spanish feature peers into the opposite end of the telescope: in one sweet but unlikely scene, Carol's father takes a break from the fall of Madrid to fly over the village and drop her a birthday gift. Imanol Uribe directed. 104 min.
