The Time of the Doves

The life of a young woman in Barcelona during the Spanish Civil War and its aftermath.Based on the celebrated 1962 novel written by exiled Catalan writer Mercè Rodoreda (translated into more than thirty languages)

Dealing with the Second Republic and the Spanish Civil War, the film is set in Barcelona before, during and after the war and pictures a young woman’s struggles in life as well as her conflictive relationships with two men, and her progression from nearly complete submission until she develops a full-fledged outlook in life, personal maturity and independence. It is also a faithful chronicle of life in the big city (Barcelona) at the time, in a balanced mixture of psychologism and naturalism.
