Elite Squad: The Enemy Within

A good soldier used to leading his team of supercops against Rio de Janeiro’s worst offenders gets kicked upstairs. Suddenly, a man used to following orders and accomplishing his mission must wrestle with why the orders are being given and who benefits from them. A satisfying, sometimes thrilling mix of narration-heavy noir, conspiracy thriller, family drama, and police action. Wagner Moura is mesmerizing as Lt. Colonel Nascimento, a man capable of displaying both brutality and tenderness without ever seeming false. 2012.
