Juana la Loca = Joan the mad by Vicente Aranda( Visual )

61 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in Spanish and Multiple languages and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joan of Castile (1479-1555, daughter of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella) has gone down in history as "Joan the Mad." Sent alone to Brussels, sheltered eighteen-year-old Joan is a willing pawn in her political marriage to a young Hapsburg, Philip, Archduke of Austria, known as "the Handsome," consolidating Spain as a regional power. Amazingly, Joan falls head-over-heels in love with Philip, who reciprocates initially, but then becomes noticeably indifferent, barely troubling to conceal his affairs. Joan suffers sobbing, despairing, jealous rages, becoming more miserable and fixated. Was Joan mad, or did she love Philip with such uncanny relentlessness that he was, in the end, helpless in the face of her passion?

In the post Spanish civil war years, Catalan kids would sit in circles among the ruins and tell "Aventis", stories without beginning or end or a purpose other than providing an outlet for the pent up horror and perversity created by war and its aftermath. These tales mix war stories, local gossip, comic book characters, fantasy and real events. The "Aventis" told in this film are told in interesting flashbacks which chronicle the Civil War in a "typical" Barcelona microcosm. In the mid '80s, 45 or so years after Franco, a doctor and a nurse-nun who were childhood friends and now coworkers, identify the corpse of one of the main characters of the "Aventis" of their childhood and adolescence. The discovery of this body (belonging to someone long presumed dead) leads to other surprises and unresolved doubts, several decades later

An intimate account of travel in Andalusia during the 1950s, Juan Goytisolo's early, short narrative grimly revisits the province of Almería, still under Franco's rule. The critic Ramón Fernández Palmeral writes: "More than a mere travelog, Goytisolo bravely chose to report the social and economic life in the Almería of those Franquista years." He adds: "Brave, most of all, because by publishing it, even at first in France, Goytisolo risked being sent to jail." --
