Storyline

How do you find a murderer amidst the chaos, death and destruction of the Second World War? On the Russian Front in the harsh winter of 1943, a series of bodies, hideously mutilated and carved with bizarre symbols and messages, are discovered. Arturo, a world-weary police inspector, now serving his country in the brutal regime of the military, makes it his personal mission to track down the killer, a cunning, vicious entity seemingly intent on making known a diabolical master plan, one that may lead to the very top of the chain of command, threatening the very direction of the war.

A very good thriller with a surprising scenario
12 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

The issue of crime within the war seldom touched, nor winners or losers, when the concept of crime-crime in war is one of the greatest ironies and paradoxes that can occur, prosecute murderers at times, while on the other hand is given and received medals for doing the same, but has done any good movies like "the Night of the Generals" 1986.

The film is exhilarating in its visual approach with icy photography, almost documentary dazzling opening sequence with inert horses trapped in the ice as the Division itself stranded between cruelty of some, and the ferocity of the other; in its scenic proposal with correct settings and "atrezzo" in most cases adjusted to reality and his own dramatic content, is not only smooth but skillfully integrates the doubts that assail the characters and the audience itself.

Good movie, excellent atmosphere in landscapes and genre own details, and especially happen to remember rather than the story itself and its good achievement due to breaking a taboo of Spanish cinema, making films from other contender side. Some of the best war movies have made them the losers, there are "Das Boot " 1981, or "Der Untergang " 2004.
