Blessed by Fire (Iluminados por el fuego) Reviews
and i liked it, it was hursh war, special for those who were sent thr to defend own land, ,
anyway, a can't say a great story...it's very sad afterall, but very real...
i now can say that what a motherland can lose in a war, is what a man can lose in a battle...
The young conscripts were not only fighting one of the world's best professional armies but also their useless and bullying officers who had brought their rough techniques they had learnt from the junta with them.
If it has any shortcomings it is in a slightly weak script, a mishandling of some key moments and an ending that reverts to type, but overall this is a must-see.
The anti-British voiceover comments and dedication to Argentine dead alone at the end did trouble me a bit, considering the UK veterans have suffered just as much post-traumatic stress disorder (as the DVD extra shows), but anything which helps us understand both sides of the conflict better is very welcome.
