At a certain point the torturers claim that the cut off fingers could still be sewed back on by a good doctor. But that's more than 24 hours after the first finger, and thus impossible. The storing on ice is not very helpful either: the frost would damage the fingers after a short while. See more »

the line between good and evil. the war. in all its forms. the appearances. and the deep roots of the story in our contemporary every day reality. few motifs for define this film as special. for the inspired grow up of story. for performances. for ambiguity who gives, at the end, an impressive revelation. for the atmosphere of play. for the states of Matjin who reflects the fears of us. for the cold verdict. and, sure, for violence who is not more than convincing spice for a film who could be a warning or just precise reflection of reality.
