Voces inocentes (2004)
some innocent lies...
I'm from El Salvador, and I watched the movie with my mom, my dad and our maid. Three different points of view, my dad was an army doctor and our maid just lived in the middle of the war.
This movie present us several lies. The army didn't recruit children, the guerrilla did. A great nationalism helped the army from recruiting, young men presented themselves at the age of 18.
Another fact, soldiers and guerrilla people didn't go into schools, and priests wore jeans and t-shirt.
Tradition such as those balloons with fire aren't from El Salvador, and the accent or some words like "orale" are Mexican, Chava is not even a Salvadorian nickname, or kella...
The good things about it: Salvadorean women are like that, they fight until death if is possible for their children, they are strict and hardworking, the country houses are represented very realistic, the kids eating mango from the trees, and the houses near the river... the kids reading a poem from Alfredo Espino, a famous Salvadorian poet at the beginning of the movie and Radio Venceremos are one of the many real things that the movie showed.
What I admire is during the shootings, how the kids throw themselves to the floor and cover the walls with the beds, our maid told me that she did that and so my mom, even that my mom lived in the city and they only had a small offensive in 1989 (were the Jesuits were killed).
In my opinion, it was a good movie, I was touched specially by Ancha!! he was a great supporting character! it makes you forget about those small facts that weren't as true as the suffering left in many rural Salvadorian families.
