Overview

Daniel Calparsoro's Guerreros is set in the Balkans in the wake of the ethnic conflict between the Serbs and the Kosovo Albanians that prompted NATO military intervention in 1999. A group of young Spanish army engineers is stationed in a Kosovo village to help the Albanians recover from the war's devastation. The unit is sent on a mission to restore electricity to a small town in hostile territory, but their operation is derailed when they get caught up in the fighting between Serb and Albanian paramilitaries. Struggling to stay neutral, the peacekeepers find themselves fighting for survival as they scamper around the Balkan countryside searching for a way back to headquarters. Their descent into the quagmire of ethnic fighting tests the limits of their idealism and underscores the moral complexities posed by humanitarian intervention. This polished actioner screened at the 2002 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Elbert Ventura

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
A slick piece of work, Guerreros follows a few tense hours in the lives of a group of Spanish army engineers stationed in war-torn Kosovo. Sent on a mission to restore an Albanian village's power supply, the idealistic peacekeepers soon get sucked into guerrilla fighting between the Serbs and Albanians. Directed with shallow flair by Daniel Calparsoro, the movie boasts the bells and whistles of a state-of-the-art Hollywood production. The grandstanding direction may strive for maximum gloss and gore, but Guerreros can't help but be compelling anyway for the relevance of its subject. Opening with the cold-blooded murder of Albanian civilians by a squad of Serb paramilitaries, the movie initially seems poised to be a screed in favor of humanitarian intervention. As the body count piles up, however, the movie's ambivalence about military peacekeeping becomes more pronounced. The slide down the slippery slope of good intentions seems to suggest that interventionism can only lead to disaster. But given the harrowing massacre with which it opens, it's a conclusion that seems confused at best. Perhaps too concerned with the logistics of battle to think the issue through, Guerreros is afflicted with the very qualities it criticizes: an earnest heart, but a muddled head.
