Mi Mejor Enemigo

My Best Enemy (Spanish: Mi mejor enemigo) is a Chilean-Argentine-Spanish film released in June 2005. Directed by Alex Bowen, the film stars Nicolás Saavedra, Erto Pantoja and Felipe Braun. Bowen won the Silver Pudú for Best Chilean Film at the 2005 Valdivia International Film Festival.

The story is based on the Beagle Conflict of December 1978 that pitted Chile and Argentina against one another. The film is mainly a critique of a conflict considered unnecessary between two neighboring countries and the subsequent abandonment of the soldiers after the end of the conflict.

The following weapons were used in the film My Best Enemy:


Unknown Pistol

When Sergeant Ocampo (Miguel Dedovich) comes to talk with Rojas, he prepares to draw an unknown gun.
