Great work by Lombardi
22 October 2002 | by (Magrathea) – See all my reviews

This accurate portrayal of the peruvian military school Leoncio Prado, this shows the diverse problems that students had to go thru while learning the facts of life. Extreme discipline, a fair amount of corruption, without overdoing violence or misery that's common in other flicks. By the way, not everyone who speaks spanish is a Mexican, and trying to say that this is another "cheap Mexican movie" is in extremely bad taste.

This institution exists, and my father was a student here, along with a lot of people I know. 'Unfortunately' I missed the opportunity to study here by barely obtaining decent grades at my regular school :D
