Si Te Dicen Que Cai ("If they tell you I fell") is an award-winning Catalan language film set in Spain after the Spanish civil war. During those post war years the young people in Catalan gathered together to share cathartic stories of the past. These tales are a mix of real events, half-truths, and fantasies. The film unfolds mostly in flashbacks depicting the stories as they are told. Decades later, two of the storytellers, Marcos (Antonio Banderas) and Aurora Nin (Victoria Abril) work in a hospital where they see a fresh corpse they recognize from the stories of their childhood. The body is Java, a man who should have died many years before according to the stories. This discovery compels them to search their childhood memories and look for new clues to find out what really happened and how Java still lived those many years later. This film vividly illustrates the toll the Spanish civil war took on the Catalan psyche.moreless
