Miguel Courtois, who as director, is controversial films as "Gal" or "El Lobo" risky step back ground with "Operación E" based on real events in Colombia.

The epicentre of the film will always marriage played by Luis Tosar and Martina Gracia, and his family. Confronting the military, the health system, the mafias ... an epic in a real world, and cruel that tests the forces and the bonds of family, and a man who only sought a peaceful existence, far from political ideologies, military ...

The script is full of adventures and troubles narration and a good rhythm that makes it enjoyable for the viewer. Luis Tosar, star of the film, does a superb job and performs an interpretation that comes very close to the character.

The film is shot with technical correctness and good taste, "Operación E" is a well entertaining film reminding us that the greatest adventures and emotions are in the world in which we live
