The music in this film makes it special - some very good rock and roll by Gold a San Francisco band of the early 70's is featured. The Chilean rock band Los Javies also adds an interesting counterpoint to the sounds. The solo songs by Country Joe never made it on to a LP, but should have. The scene at the end with the goose stepping Chilean Army wearing Nazi like helmets and jack boots is a sight to see. Allende appears in the film as himself when he was elected President of Chile. The film is bilingual and includes many locals playing roles in the film. This is a historical film based on real events in that turbulent time in Chile and comes across as a sort of documentary, musical. Saul Landau did a great job in directing this unusual film.
