Soldiers, the real victims of war
26 May 2003 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

The Spanish movie GUERREROS (WARRIORS) is an unexpected but pleasant surprise. This is not a movie against war; is against been involved in other people's war. To Americans, Kosovo with Serbs and Macedonians has little or no significance. Seems that Spanish people had the same problem.

A maintenance Spanish platoon sent as peace force to Kosovo with the only objective of restoring electricity in destroyed towns. By unexpected circumstances, they get involved in a fight between Serbs and Macedonians. They are attacked, tortured, raped and hunted from both sides alternatively, without even knowing who are they protecting or who is the enemy. The joke of the movie is that we know neither, why, just because in the war people dies before questions are asked or answered and being the good side is only a matter of who is the winner.

By the end, the surviving `virgin soldiers' had become psychos, killing innocent people crossing their path.

Calparoso gives the movie a calculated pace and avoids easy common places. The change from inexperienced kids to monsters is a product of several shocking and difficult to watch situations. The story and the characters could seem something you saw before, but will surprise you in some moment.

There are lots of movies out there telling that war is not a game; but this one is really worth looking.
