Carol’s Journey

Directed by Imanol Uribe | Spain, Portugal, 2002, 103

Carol, a 12-year-old Spanish-American girl from New York, travels with her mother to Spain in the spring of 1938, at the height of the Spanish Civil War. Her father has joined the left-wing International Brigade as a pilot, fighting Franco’s fascist regime, and Carol and her mother are able to pass letters to him via a smuggler along the frontlines. But Carol’s Spanish family are conservative Catholics, and she struggles to adapt to life in this old-fashioned village. As the war progresses and conditions in the village deteriorate, her eyes are opened to a shocking new world of intrigue and danger.

What every documentary special on the history channel has taught us about war is that the ultimate tragedies are the victims who are torn away from their loved-ones. Spanish director Imanol Uribe’s Carol’s Journey (Spanish title: El Viaje de Carol) is a portrait of human’s psychological defiance to assimilate to ideals of another way of thinking under the conditions of a civil war Spain.
