Summary

Italy, 1944. After a sergeant shoots an unarmed woman in cold blood, three soldiers that must learn if the Nazi army will surrender or not. They confront a terrible night, a hill that never ends, unbearable cold, sniper shots, and the possible betrayal of the old man who guides them. But above all else, they debate over the moral dilemma as witnesses of the assassination of that poor woman. Bausch uses his narrative prowess to reflect on the insanity of war and the difficulty of maintaining justice in such terrible circumstances.

Paz es una historia de guerra, el relato hipnótico de una noche helada en la que tres soldados deben llevar a cabo una misión exploratoria. Justo antes de partir, el sargento al mando de la patrulla dispara contra una mujer desarmada. El dilema moral, el frío y el dolor les perseguirán tanto como el miedo a ser sorprendidos por un francotirador. Nos encontramos en el sur de Italia, en 1944. Tras la escena inicial, en la que el sargento al mando de la patrulla dispara a sangre fría contra una mujer desarmada, siguen su camino tres soldados que deben averiguar si el ejército nazi se retira o va a plantear batalla. Se enfrentan a una noche terrible, una colina que no termina jamás, un frío insoportable, los disparos de un francotirador y la posible traición de un viejo que les guía; pero sobre todo, se debaten ante un obsesivo dilema moral como testigos del asesinato. Además de contar con maestría admirable una historia bellísima, Richard Bausch utiliza la narración para reflexionar acerca de la locura desatada por las guerras y la enorme dificultad de mantener algún sentido de la justicia en tan terribles circunstancias.
