El violín = The violin by Francisco Vargas Quevedo( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El Violín, ofrece un cine cultural con una visión al despertar de una nación. Habla de una revolución violenta y como un grupo de hombres se involucran en parte de la guerrilla campesina, que trata de enfrentar al gobierno. Pero la película se enfoca en un personaje: Don Plutarco, interpretado magistralmente por Don Ángel Tavira. Un hombre de 81 que no es un actor profesional, pero actuó de una manera natural y convincente. Las primeras escenas de la película son verdaderamente buenas, es como una introducción a una película, algo que yo en lo particular nunca había visto. Es una película que muchos consideran fuerte, con música tradicional que en cada escena esta presente. Un film sobre las luces apagadas, sobre las voces restringidas por una sociedad y gobierno irresponsable
