The military anti-terrorist army takes control of "Chuspi", an unknown and faraway small village, isolated by the terrorist group "Sendero Luminoso" (Shining Path). A soldier called Vitin Luna, and other young soldiers face an invisible, perhaps superior force. Their unit is commanded by a brutal lieutenant who declares the entire village guilty of treason. In the face of this crisis, Vitin must choose between blind obedience and his own conscience. Written by
I just saw this movie and let me say that it's as realistic as it can get, in some scenes it's hard to distinguish if it's a movie or a documentary. The movie not only documents the reality of the peruvian civil war but also what exactly goes on in villages afflicted by war, the movie also depicts the racism against indian peoples in latin nations. This movie is the epitome of realism. I know this because I have been myself in the middle of a Latin American civil war and there's nothing you can subtract from this movie as being unrealistic. The "Sendero Luminoso" (Shinning Path) guerrillas were the most strange guerrilla movement in the American continent, it was refreshing to see this movie and see their modus operandi in the battlefield.
I give it an 8/10.
