Freedom. Life. Future. Those three aspirations guide Luca ‘La Llanera’ (Bebe) in each of the five chapters that make up the serie Freedom (Movistar +). After spending 17 years in prison, this brave woman faces a new life with her son Juan, who was born in prison.
Is he XIX century, Carlos IV governs and the Spain that is going to receive this free woman is full of bandits without fear of dying, miserable governors and some noble types of heart who will help her survive.
A SERIES BY ENRIQUE URBIZU
Enrique Urbizu He is the director of both the series and its version for the cinema already released. The Bilbao filmmaker is known for films like All for the pasta, Box 507 O There will be no peace for the wicked. After having directed two chapters of the series The Adventures of Captain Alatriste in 2015, three years ago he was responsible for Giants. Now with Freedom, Urbizu signs a kind of little road movie in which death stalks the characters On every path they walk
The somber tone of the photograph, a multitude of scenes shot outdoors and a cast that fulfills its role well are details in favor of a production in which the story of La Llanera is the excuse for show a time full of injustices. Freedom it is more, since it vindicates the importance of women in a time when they were cornered to housework and parenting. And it also talks about the great advantage that the enlightened had in front of the illiterate.
BABY AND THE OTHER LEADING PLAYERS
Bebe, a successful singer who has acting experience in films such as The education of the fairies O Catica Ana, is the protagonist of Freedom. But, to tell the truth, other actors have a very prominent presence in this series.
It is the case of Jorge Suquet, who puts himself in the shoes of John, an English writer who travels to impoverished Spain so that the history of La Llanera lives on in time; Isak Frriz as Aceituno, a bandit who has no problem killing whoever gets in his way; and Luis Callejo placeholder image as the Governor, a despicable guy we almost always see feasting at Don Anastasio’s house, the powerful character he plays Pedro Casablanc.
They also have their importance Jasn Fernndez, the young man who plays the son of La Llanera; Gins Garca Milln like a loner who crosses the path of the protagonist, and Xabier Deive, like Lagartijo, Juan’s father. Despite the fact that La Llanera only wants to be left in peace for her and her son, they will make her life impossible.
AN OUTDOOR PRODUCTION
Freedom is a series that moves away from the typical that are now popular, with a leisurely pace and without great effects in which landscapes play a very prominent role. The filming took place in locations of the Sierra de Madrid, as well as in various areas of Guadalajara, Cuenca and Segovia. Open spaces that make up a gloomy setting.
Many times, Freedom looks like a western crepuscular by the feeling that anyone can die and no one will miss the deceased. They have been in charge of the script Miguel Barros and Michel Gaztambide, two writers who know what it’s like to recreate stories of rural misery in films like Cows O Blackthorn: Sin destino.
