Movie Info

Rogelio is a member of the phalanx that just at the end of the war is marked by a fact: the son of a victim of his has planted a small bud of fig tree in the grave of his parents. The Falangist, corroded by guilt and repentance, decides to take care of that little fig tree as a way to atone for his sins. But around the tree will appear diverse characters of the most diverse.

Critic Reviews for The Bastards' Fig Tree (La higuera de los bastardos)

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

A thin plot and a distractingly jaunty score hold "The Bastards' Fig Tree" back. But for the most part, this is a thought-provoking historical fairy tale about the values - and grudges - that survive whomever's in power.

It is not only the film about the Spanish Civil War that we deserve, but also the one that we need. [Full Review in Spanish]

For as slight as The Bastards' Fig Tree is, I can't say I didn't have a good time watching it.

An absorbing film on the lingering effects of fascism.

Grim, unsatisfying...probably not the fable about fascism that Western Civilization needs to see right now.

May 29, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The Bastards' Fig Tree isn't primarily an interrogation of history, and it never explicitly addresses all of these thorny issues. But by virtue of its setting and narrative material, the film still ends up making a political statement.
