The indomitable spirit of one woman during Indonesian take over of Portuguese East Timor.
18 April 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A Guerra da Beatriz is one of the most powerful films and best Cinematography I have ever seen - rates up their with "The Mission" for me. Perfect score, brilliant acting, breathtaking scenery.

One of those rare films in which the balance of people story, history, beauty and pain is finely tuned , to where the mind and heart are singing and crying at the same time.

I rate this film 10 out of 10, and send gratitude to the Timorese writer, and all who made this movie. (and empathy to all Timorese who suffered under Indonesian rule).

Beatiz story is haunting and passionate and explores Truth, Love, and morality in rare and heart felt ways .
