La Lengua de las mariposas
(1999)

AKA: Butterfly

Country: Spain

Genre: Drama

IMDb

Synopsis

For Moncho, it's an idyllic year: he starts school, he has a wonderful teacher, he makes a friend in Roque. But it's also the year that the Spanish Republic comes under fire from Fascist rebels. Moncho's father is a Republican as is the aging teacher, Don Gregorio. As sides are drawn and power falls clearly to one side, the forces of fear, violence, and betrayal alter profoundly what should be the pleasure of coming of age.

Sweet film, prettily pastoral, that feels fairly inconsequential until the very powerful ending scene. Thematically a little similar to the uniquely brilliant The Spirit of the Beehive.
