This film is very similar to "The official Story", the Argentinean film staring Norma Leandro, about children kidnapped by officers in charge of interrogation to many young people claiming justice from the military Argentinean government. The officers were abusing the prisoners until death and then taking their children under their possession. The beautiful Irene Visedo looks sensational and her performance is much better than the others senior actors on the film. I love her acting very much, which has improved, as you can see in the TV series "cuentame como paso"(2001-2005). Concha Velasco's performance as Monica's mother is so and so. The Argentinean actors playing the roles of Monica's father and grandfather respectively are good enough. I strongly recommend the film, I think that just to watch Irenes's performance is good enough to recommend this movie.
