Synopsis:
It is the middle of the Salvadorian War and twelve-year-old boys are being rousted from their classrooms to fight in the government armed forces against the peasant rebels of the FMLN. Chava (Carlos Padilla), an eleven-year-old boy who has been left as 'the man of the house' after his father abandons his family, has one more year of innocence left before he too will be conscripted to fight for the government. Based on the true story of screenwriter Oscar Torres's embattled childhood, Luis Mandoki's Innocent Voices is the harrowing tale of survival and how even war cannot diminish a child's indomitable spirit.

Realistic and moving - Innocent Voices review by NG

Spoiler Alert
02/04/2011

Having lived in Nicaragua, the events portrayed in El Salvador at the time of the civil war through the eyes of a young 11 year old bring to life the reality of living in an inferno. The acting is natural and extremely moving, particularly of Chava, the lead boy and his mother. It is an important film to watch to remember and understand the difficulties and agonies of the people of that time. It is also uplifting to see how people fight to survive and love each other. A well made film, realistic and very human. Can be hard to watch at times, as children are involved in war and death. It also highlights the worldwide abusive use of child soldiers.
