'Insensibles' ('Painless')

"The Civil War without the hurt"
El País in English

Beneath the scars that have only superficially covered up the wounds left by the Spanish Civil War, many stories are hidden — enough to spawn important films such as The Spirit of the Beehive and Pan’s Labyrinth. The debut of writer-director Juan Carlos Medina, Painless (known as Insensibles in Spanish) dares to follow that path, mixing genres to deliver a dark investigation into evil.
Medina draws a parallel with what is happening in society today: the past, which often prevents us from seeing, overshadows the present. “For half a century they wanted to uncivilize us. Imagine Spain as a person, with the intellectual rigor of the Second Republic. They cut off his arms and legs and then they ask him to regenerate itself.”
