Frantic action , chases , explosions and thrills in this Kosovo warfare motion picture
31 August 2013 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This war film packs adventures , large-scale blow-up , thrilling plot , and lots of action for the most part , but also contains thought-provoking issues about courage and cowardice . The conflict between Servia and Kosovo serves as thrilling backdrop for this Wartime picture . It's a good mix of action-packed , adventure , thriller and warfare genre . The tragic story of a platoon of Spanish soldiers in Kosovo 2000 ; at the beginning they are rebuilding a Church , restoring electricity and helping villagers . The platoon is formed by Eloy Azorín as Soldado Vidal , Carla Pérez as Soldado Balbuena , Roger Casamajor as Soldado Lucas and Jordi Vilches as Cabo 1º Ballesteros ; all of them commanded by an unexperienced Teniente Alonso played by Eduardo Noriega and a tough Sargento Rubio performed by Rubén Ochandiano . Later on , they are assigned a mission in the hell of the Kosovo war . On rout their destination , the bunch is ambushed by Kosovar soldiers and their military vehicle -Oruga- sinks into a river . After that , the team escapes but they are detained , raped and strongly tortured .

This exciting movie contains noisy adventure , war and intense drama . Other chief excitements about the picture , will be in the intervention of a good plethora of Spanish actors and young secondaries who realize professionally competent interpretations . The traditional story and exciting screenplay was well written by the same Daniel Calparsoro though clichés run through-out , the enjoyable tale is enhanced for interesting moments developed among main characters and especially on their intense relationship when take place the upsettings moments when are attacked , besieged or mistreated . Thrilling musical score by Najwa Nimri as Najwajean , being composed by means of synthesizer . Colorful and evocative cinematography by Josep Civit filmed on location in Istog, Jablanica, Bosnia-Herzegovina , Klina, Kosovo and Lerida , Huesca , Guadalajara , Spain .

This is another superbly powerful Warfare movie being compellingly directed Daniel Carlparsoro. Daniel was raised in Donostia , for that reason most films are set in Basque country . Daniel uses to work with his spouses , as his first wife , Najawa Nimri composes his films and played in Asfalto , A Ciegas ; and his second one , Patricia Vico , performed in La Ira . Calparsoro is an expert on action and violent movies , such as 2o13 Combustion , 2012 Invasor Ausentes , 2000 Asfalto , 1997 A Ciegas ,1996 Pasajes , 1995 Salto a Vacío .
