Original Title: La larga noche

“He’d received Almeida’s hand-written note in the producer’s Barcelona headquarters. It looked like a page from a school notebook, or one ripped out of the Notes section of a diary and the big, untidily scribbled letters invaded the margins: the barest summary of a plot and the film’s title, The Long Night. There were hardly any other instructions for writing the script, the first draft of which had to be ready within sixteen weeks […] Although Almeida’s note made no explicit mention of any historic episode, it vaguely reminded him of ‘The Long Night’ of Madrid’s resistance during the Civil War”.
