Basque terrorist faced with the dilemma of killing woman in cold blood, 1 May 2001
Author: ElianaM from Santiago, Chile

A timely movie, dealing with ETA, the infamous Basque terrorists who have again stepped up their campaign in Spain and France. To make a "meaningful" yet entertaining film about this, one does, what else? A moral dilemma drama.

In it, Arian is a young activist, in love with her marionettes and Vivaldi-a veteran ETA member. One day, she is asked to work as an informant for this terrorist group to obtain information about a woman whom they plan to kidnap. Arian remembers her fathers saying, "I've always been willing to die, but not kill for my country." However, she joins the group after all and her life starts heading into a dead-end street.

The film is worth watching not only for its subject matter, but for the excellent ensemble cast, headed by Ingrid Rubio, arguably Spain's best young dramatic actress.
