The Heifer

The Heifer [Jet Films, Incine]

The story at the frontline of the Spanish Civil War about the Republican soldiers' attempted robbery of a heifer from a town taken over by the rebels is a true and too humane satire about the war. During a time when the cinema recovered on the war and the postwar period was an obligation of historical memory after almost half a century of dictatorship, Berlanga and Azcona propose a corrosive look towards the conflict presenting the fight for life through an unpleasant turn of events, though lacking of epic, defines the humanity of which the poor soldiers are true bearers, indifferent to what the horror and nonsense of war implies.
