Jonathan Holland (Variety) review:

14 helmers (all under 30) took their cameras out on the road to film the April 2003 "Dignity March" to Madrid by ex-workers of a subsidiary of Telefonica, Spain's state-run telco. Result is a human, potent and unashamedly one-sided homage to these men and their families that's suited to political sidebars.

Given the circumstances under which it was made, “200KM” is a surprising accomplishment. As a coda to last year’s docu on the same subject, “El efecto Iguazu,” 14 helmers (all under 30) took their cameras out on the road to film the April 2003 “Dignity March” to Madrid by ex-workers (mostly over 50) of a subsidiary of Telefonica, Spain’s state-run telco. They were protesting the non-fulfillment of an agreement between unions and government. Result is a human, potent and unashamedly one-sided homage to these men and their families that’s suited to political sidebars.

The job of the camera crews on the six highways leading into Madrid was simply to record. Pic is mostly memorable for the characters they encounter: two workers struggling with studio technology during a local radio interview; elderly women sitting on a village bench and offering their unwittingly amusing political views; a young man breaking down with the words, “They’ve destroyed us.” Despite warnings against violence, one man wounds union leader Jose Maria Fidalgo, an event that received nationwide coverage: The planned Madrid celebration was then called off.
