Veronico Cruz ★★½ La Dueda Interna; The Debt 1987

Despite its sincerity, Pereira's feature debut offers muddled response to the human waste incurred by the Falklands War. Set in a tiny remote village in the Argentinean mountains, the film's narrative is derived from the growing friendship between a shepherd boy and a teacher from the city. Wellmeaning antiwar movie. In Spanish with English subtitles. 96m/C VHS, DVD . AR GB Juan Jose Camero, Gonzalo Morales, Rene Olaguivel, Guillermo Delgado; D: Miguel Pereira; W: Miguel Pereira, Eduardo Leiva Muller; C: Gerry Feeny; M: David Eppel, Jaime Torres.
