Los paraísos perdidos by Basilio Martín Patino( Visual )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This literary film is imbued with the disenchantment of Spanish exiles who left their homes to protest Franco's fascist regime and then returned after its demise to find that democracy had not instilled either ethics or deep motivation in government leaders. Director Basilio Martin Patino presents his story, (a large part of the film is based on his own life), through the experiences of an exiled heroine played by Charo Lopez. She has returned to Spain to look for meaning in her life, something that she never found living in Germany, not even after having a child. She is also in the process of translating the German lyric poet Friederich Hölderlin into Spanish, focusing on his epic Hyperion. Excerpts from the translation are voiced over throughout the film. As she looks up old friends from many years ago, she finds even those who have achieved worldly success are suffering from the same ennui that propelled her back home
