As I told in my latest appointment
has been released in Spain to the general dissapointment of most people who have watched it. If a teenager like Harry Potter deserves a movie per book, why a grown man like Alatriste has to make do with a single movie for all his life? That's the main problem with the movie: the plot leaks, and it's a badly-stitched sequence of superb scenes, with superb actors (most ot them, anyways), superb production design, but that leaves you with the feeling that, if half the scenes had been suppressed (in a 150-minute movie), not much would have been lost.
At least people watching a dubbed version won't have to hear the not-quite-Spanish (and much less castillian) accent of Viggo Mortensen. Imagine Schwarzenegger playing Sam Adams. You get the idea.
At any rate, please go and watch the movie. My Úbeda
, is very nicely featured in it, and quite a significant scene takes place in Ubeda buildings.
