Boina Blanca (White Beret) is set in during the Argentine Revolution of the 1890s. The story is a melodramatic imbroglio involving a pair of lovers separated by the vagaries of history and ideology. Every so often, the film stops breast-beating in favor of comedy relief. For the most part, however, Boina Blanca is an endless parade of historical re-creations, patriotic songs and righteous fervor, undoubtedly palatable for Argentine filmgoers but rough sledding for anyone else. Sabina Olmos goes through her usual weepy histrionics as the put-upon heroine, while Francisco Alvarez provides the much-needed laughs.
