Set in the first months of the Spanish Civil War, this riveting and timely chamber drama from acclaimed writer-director Alejandro Amenábar (THE OTHERS) tracks the country's slide into nearly four decades of fascism under dictator Francisco Franco.

Critic Reviews:

  • " … clarity in the exposition of a looming, dangerous dictatorship in the guise of patriotism. " – Filipe Freitas (Always Good Movies)
  • " While At War is a complex, steady, deeply intelligent film with a chilling resonance today, and a significant departure in tone from Amenabar's prior work. " – Fionnuala Halligan (Screen International)
  • " The deeper into the film we get, and the closer the realities of the war become to Unamuno, the more Amenábar and his co-writer Alejandro Hernández lean into the melodrama. " – Amber Wilkinson (Eye for Film)
