I loved it. It really worth's your time!!! Great cast!Really emotional and at the same time extremely shocking! What those people got through is really admirable. They believed, they tried, they succeed. Even though I got really frustrated that those awful people had not been punished appropriate, I am glad that at last someone did something to stop them. The corruption of that time is unbelievably similar to our time. The only difference is that now, it seems to be a more honorable corruption, known by everyone, legal at this point of view, very well hidden and at the same time we supposed to be more civilized. We just hide this madness better.This movie shows as that corruption exists everywhere, even in embassies. Don't miss it!!
