what a sad story!!!
28 December 2012 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

When we see this movie, we start to think: what kind of people voluntarily put their own children in the middle of a dirty war?? What kind of fanaticism produces people like these? Unfortunately that kind of "leftist" fanaticism of the 1970's is somehow being replaced by other kinds of fanaticism so many innocent "idealists" keep falling for the sake of "ideas", ideologies or religions. In the middle of that craziness the only sane voice seems to be the kid's grandmother. But nevertheless, despite the sad story (the world is full of sad stories, isn't it?), this movie is very well realized and the acting, direction and editing are very good. The idea of using drawings to replace certain violent scenes was already used before in an Israeli movie but nevertheless was very well done.
