Alatriste (20)

Alatriste (2006)
Country: Spain
Director: Agustin Diaz Yañez

First, excuse me for the language, but how do fuck did this film got nominated for so many Goyas (Spain's oscars), Azuloscurocasinegro was a very fine film that has a lot more heart and fun in it. I like Viggo Mortensen, I really loved his darkish performance in Cronenberg's A History of Violence, and yes, his spanish is great since he was raised in Argentina. He is fine in Alatriste, but his accent is way too tick, that's also fine, what bothered me is that he tried way to hard to hide it, to the point that he had to whisper words, making it harder to understand for latinos. Production design is good, and the costumes are great as well. The screenplay was... does Alatriste have a screenplay? or was it so bad that my brain just decided to ignore it? Alatriste is a huge failure, it never really accomplishes its goals. At moments it tried too hard to be historic and present an era of Spain. Dissapointing as this is probably the most expensive spanish-language film ever made? And what´s up with it having every single spanish actor there is.
