Quite good, but it perhaps goes too big in the middle
23 February 2014 | by zetesSee all my reviews

From Spain. I walked away from the programming thinking this had to be the one that would win. It's a super intense piece about a couple of Spaniards in Africa - they might be doctors looking to help rebels, or they might be there to "rescue" child soldiers. They have put themselves in much danger either way, and are quickly captured and face execution. This is intense - almost too much so, honestly. After a while, it starts to feel a little like misery porn. I also didn't care too much for the slick, Peter Berg-esque war filmmaking. But the setting deserves intense treatment, and, in the end, I found it quite powerful.
