Storyline

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 El Abuelo

Shockingly simple, Brutally dark
9 May 2002 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

While Latin cinema has been lagging over the past few years, this film exemplifies the political turmoil that tends to fall into play when one regards the Third Cinema. Dark and scary, this film really took me by surprise not merely for its power, but for the fact it was one of the first foreign films that broke the stereotypes I had placed on the genre. All of the characters are realistic, and while the last scene rings loudly of The Deer Hunter, it is a fitting way to end the film.
