Storyline

"Eine Polizei Horror Show" is a documentary portraying the dramatic story of Fernando Ariel Carrera, an ordinary man unjustly convicted to 30 years of prison -not by mistake but deliberately- by the manipulation of a Judicial Case. The movie takes as a central point the way in which Fernando Carrera's case was set up: the manipulation and alteration of evidence at the scene; the manipulation by the police of the testimonies of the few witnesses called to declare; the manipulation of national media by Rubén Maugeri, key witness and president of the 34th Precinct Friends Association. On the other hand, we show how Fernando Carrera lives his days in prison, knowing he is another victim of police excesses and of a legal system that unjustly convicted him. Written by Anonymous

Discovering a whole new world
2 June 2015 | by manuelvarelacSee all my reviews

I've seen tons of movies and read many critics in IMDb, but this is the first time I find a film so touching that leads me to write an opinion about it. On start, "Rati" is a pun: it means "Tira" ("Shoots") written backwards; a funny name for cops, referred to their unofficial motto "shoot first, ask later". The title summaries the whole film, a journalistic documentary, well carried and with the director as protagonist. Piñeyro takes a journey through irregularities, lies and the horrific plot around the famous case of Fernando Carreras. Conclusions perfectly illustrate the reality of Argentina's police and the concept of "justice" that prevails in some state institutions, shown with both humor and indignation. Mixed with TV reports, interviews and real images of the trial, this piece of art constitutes a rarity: a political but objective film, mixed with breathtaking moments, where no artificial ingredients are needed since truth prevails by its own weight.
