The Dancer Upstairs by Nicholas Shakespeare (4 stars)

A riveting story told by Colonel Augustin Rejas to a foreign correspondent, John Dyer, of his investigation and capture of a Peruvian guerrilla leader.
 
Dyer was pursuing a different man for an interview when by chance, he met Colonel Rejas.  Just like Dyer, I was completely sucked in by the story Rejas was relating.  It’s not just about the criminal actions of both the government and the guerrilas, the violence committed against the people, but also about the people themselves; about culture, humanity, and love.
 
Fascinating story, I’d like to see if the movie is just as good…
