Innocent Voices

[ Innocent Voices ]

Deepavali 假期时在ASTRO 看到的一部电影, 令阿晶目不转睛. 很感伤, 和悲哀的一个故事, 真人真事. 不能相信在世界的另一角发生着这样的事情.

有没有想过, 为什么会打战?
权利? 名利? 金钱? 还是什么?
强迫刚满12岁的孩童充当兵士, 拿着枪杀人的啊? 而且还随时会被杀.
无端的丧失这么多条无辜的人命?

曾经听过一段话. “为了成大事, 小小的牺牲是难免的.”
可是, 我们说的是人命.
真的无所谓吗?

Synopsis (from Innovent Voices Official Website):

More than 300,000 children presently serve in armies in over 40 countries.

Based on the true story of screenwriter Oscar Torres’s embattled childhood, Luis Mandoki’s Innocent Voices is the poignant tale of Chava (Carlos Padilla), an eleven-year-old boy who suddenly becomes the “man of the house” after his father abandons the family in the middle of a civil war.

In El Salvador in the 1980s, the government’s armed forces are already recruiting twelve year olds, rousting them out of their classes at the local middle school. If he is lucky, Chava has just one year of innocence left, one year before he, too, will be conscripted to fight the government’s battle against the peasant rebels of the FMLN. Chava’s life becomes a game of survival, not only from the bullets of the escalating war, but also from the dispiriting effects of daily violence. As he hustles to find work to help his single mother pay the bills, and experiences the pangs of first love for a beautiful classmate, Chava’s tiny home village becomes both playground and battlefield.

Armed only with the love of his mother (Leonor Varela) and a small radio that broadcasts a forbidden anthem of love and peace, and faced with the impossible choice of joining either the army or the rebels, Chava finds the courage to keep his heart open, and his spirit alive, in his race against time.
