Excellent piece
9 May 2001 | by rsnunezSee all my reviews

A military Internal Affairs investigation is launched after several "accidents" (red codes) in a military base in Argentine Patagonia. Excellent piece, something like an Argentinian version of Platoon mixed with A few good men. Nicely done, good cast, great photography, good story. Based on true stories within the Argentine Army. A good insight on the South American armies, their fights with real and imaginary enemies, and their contradictory self-perception as guardians of the national interest, it is also interesting to look at the character of the priest, afar from the role of the military chaplains of the Argentine Army
