Life is a continuous struggle and nobody ever wins, until they stop fighting. Those who keep struggling along end up turning against each other and become aggressors to both guilty and innocent. And this vicious circle never ends. This is the story of this film, one which seems at times to go out of its way in order to convinces the audience that it doesn't secretly root for any of its characters. But not to create a sort of balance beyond what life would have in store for these characters, or for this story, if they had been historical. It is not a film about crime and punishment. It is a film about failure, about powerlessness, about mortality, about the fact that at the end of great courage and great sacrifice there might not be any victory, or any justice, or even any truth.
