Also film version in Spanish (no subtitles):

There's a 1980s version as well with English subtitles. It was on Channel 4 (before it turned to shit) and was in three one and a half hour episodes. I have it on video, taped off the telly. Dunno if there's a dvd. I can only find the first 1 and half minutes of it on Youtube, and with no subtitles:

Why is it ant-fascist. It's about the rebellion of the dispossessed and oppressed, no more no less. Didn't notice any fascists in the book or film.

In typical leftist style, the term "anti-fascist" is abused (that is, deployed without much care for accuracy or descriptive intent) almost as much as "fascist."
