Can someone tell me how this movie critiques on fascism?
Because I have no idea. I don't even know what that question is asking me and I have to figure it out for a class discussion tomorrow.

This class is so frustrating.

Woah.

I can only say this: I fucking hate when people look that deeply into movie meanings.

You didn't think that having the main antagonist be her fascist military commander of a father brutally hunting down, torturing, and killing anti-fascist revolutionaries while similarly repressing his wife and daughter with his cold, authoritarian manner was a direct commentary on fascism in Spain? That one doesn't seem like a deep stretch to me.

Wasn't he her stepfather?

Anyway, I'm not well-versed on Spains history of fascism. I just enjoyed the movie. But my comment was more in a general sense.


Also, OP, I think you just got your answer ;)

That he was/that makes more sense.

I can only say this:  you're not a film major, like me.  That's why you "fucking hate" it.
