Storyline

In 1977, the goalkeeper of the Almagro team Claudio Tamburrini is illegally kidnapped from his home, arrested by the government forces and sent blindfolded to Sere Mansion, a clandestine detention center. His acquaintance Tano, who had been tortured for a long period, had falsely accused Claudio of being a revolutionary. Along the months, Claudio is kept nude and handcuffed together with the prisoners El Gallego, El Vasco and Guillermo Fernández and submitted to all sort of humiliations and tortures, until the night they decide to escape from their imprisonment in the old mansion. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

User Reviews

Picture of a century
1 July 2010 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

A great movie. About the pain of truth and the fight against a regime. About the hope and the sin. About democracy and fear.All is perfect. Actors, lights, screenplay. Slice by slice, the movie becomes a testimony. Not about a piece of Argentina history but about a reality in which many of us, actors, victims, silhouettes, are crumbs. The story is basic. The scenes are stone rain. The end is not happy, not heroic. But saint full. A film about every regime for who democratic values are fiction. About the power and not authority. About lies and dark illusion. About limits and resistance. About Albania of Enver Hodja or Cambodgia of Pol Pot. Or, maybe, Belarus of Lukashenko. A lesson. About the force to be more than a mask, number or victim. And a homage to the people for who the moral victory is more important than all prizes. Must see! Foe understand.
