Despite the fact that the film never specifies on places or political and/or terrorist groups of any kind –except for a suggestive mention of ETA– this troubled reencounter of former militants who speak “Argentine” and search for the remains of former fellow fighters in the jungle (of Peru, but that’s also never specified) is, most definitely, a provocative film with deep roots in reality and political history, both local and from many other places (many people will say the main reference –or at least one of them– is the Montoneros). Lacuesta builds a dramatic story about memory, which is not what it seemed to be at first, and progressively blurs that reunion of ex-militants in such a way that his film becomes darker and darker. He questions his characters’ political stands, as well as their manners and perspectives: he confronts them with their pasts. The surprising conversation between Silvia (the key absent character) and Martin (Daniel Fanego) is not only the film’s ideological core and most tense moment; it’s also what links the film with The Blondes, and turns Los condenados into a film that is deeply political, rich, controversial, and brave.
