The morbid and gripping war film Blessed by Fire is well worth a look.

Illuminated by Fire is a watchable if none-too-penetrating analysis of the traumatizing effects of a war largely forgotten.

Tristán Bauer's new war movie has an even more bitterly ironic title in Spanish: Iluminados por El Fuego or Enlightened by Fire.

The battlefield sequences unfold with surreal horror, while the human bonding in the foxholes emerges tenderly.

Tristan Bauer's film portrays the Falklands War in 1982 as a mismanaged, vainglorious spasm of nationalism.
