a moderately interesting drama about an american journalist who becomes involved with guerrillas in el-salvador in the early 80's. but this isn't an off-putting political polemic. instead, it focuses on the private drama of the main characters - lust, righteous fervor, betrayal. the story itself is nothing new, but the original direction and tight visuals and editing keep us interested throughout. najwa nimri is amazing, and we'll probably be seeing a lot of her.
