A real escape from a high security prison
16 April 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Based on a real story, Trelew gives an account of the amazing escape of the most important "guerrilleros" that were imprisoned in a remote jail in Argentina in 1972.

The most important survivors of this "aventure", 30 years later, relate how the planned the flee, and how it was executed. Everything was perfect, however, at the end, there was a terrible misunderstanding and only a few leaders can take the plane to freedom. The others, who could not get flight, were cowardly executed.

Although the story is fairly told, there are some moments in which the film turns to a too rosy picture of the "guerrilleros", exaggerating the support that they enjoyed from the common people. That is the reason why I refrained myself for giving a 9.
