If you liked.  Casablanca, you’ll love The Anarchist’s Wife

The plot derives from the experience of the director’s grandparents. Her grandfather, an anarchist, fought in Madrid against Francisco Franco’s Nationalists during the Spanish Civil War. He was deported to a concentration camp, then fought for the French Resistance. His wife, with two young children, never gave up hope of seeing him again .

Though the characters in this film are fictional, all of the events are very, very real.

The  English subtitles  have been re-edited and, though not perfect, the narrative is now flows and,  with one or two exceptions,  accurately reflects the dialogue.
