Some people see the left view, socialist thoughts same as desire of a communist tyranny,it was a beautiful film about the difference between the two... .he is not so great at reflecting the psychology of war and creating pessimistic atmosphere.Loach is a director who is anxious to give message with cinema for this reason details of his characters are very superficial.İt wasnt an atmosphere cinema but good film.
Ultimately the film is a kind of tragedy, one in which Stalinist repression and internecine fighting amongst the Spanish Republicans played a huge part in preventing a Fascist victory. The kind of political analysis that is common in Loach's films. A simple and well-told story which nevertheless carries a strong emotional message. It's a wonder that more films haven't touched on the Spanish Civil War in all honesty.

Les scènes de débat sur la collectivisation des terres et l'opportunité de rejoindre ou non les brigades communistes sont particulièrement bienvenues et réussies.
