On Netflix you can watch Pau, la Força d’un Silenci (2017), or The Power of Silence in English from today. The Spanish war film tells the true story of musician and composer Pau Casals during the Second World War.
In the mid-1940s, Pau Casals is one of the best musicians of the moment. He is exiled to Prades in France and promises not to play in public until the end of Franco’s dictatorship. He also tries to help Republican families to protect themselves against the Gestapo. After the war, Pau hopes that the Allied victory will also mean the end of Franco’s dictatorship.
