Good as a motion picture
27 June 1999 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

I liked the movie but if you read the Mario Vargas Llosa's novel it's even better. The movie is as good as La boca del lobo. The acting is good: Alberto, el Esclavo, Jaguar, and specially Gustavo Bueno as Teniente Gamboa. A classic of peruvian filmography.
