The Peruvian anti-terrorist army takes control of a far away and unknown small village isolated in the Andes by the terrorist militia "Sendero Luminoso" (Shining Path), during the dirty war in Peru at 80's decade.
The military anti-terrorist army takes control of "Chuspi", an unknown and faraway small village, isolated by the terrorist group "Sendero Luminoso" (Shining Path). A soldier called Vitin Luna, and other young soldiers face an invisible, perhaps superior force. Their unit is commanded by a brutal lieutenant who declares the entire village guilty of treason. In the face of this crisis, Vitin must choose between blind obedience and his own conscience.Written by
This movie truly illustrates the horrors of war, and how many issues can get confused. Everyone is a victim in war, even the people who fight in it. This film shows just that through the eyes of an initially ambitious soldier. He soon finds out that things aren't as black an white as they appear to be. I was impressed by the reality of that perspective. The camera work and technical components of this film adds to its success in my eyes. The film was well done, and is on my list of favourites.
