Little pieces about Chile
26 July 1999 | by (Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

When "Palomita Blanca" was shown in Chilean theaters, a lot of people felt disappointed because this movie has "no story". Anyway, this movie is a fresh and humoristic portrait of Chilean society in the 70s. A lot of situations depicted with humour become, I think, part of the best of Chilean cinematography, making fun about political dogmas and social differences (Chile is a very class-distinction country). "Palomita Blanca" was shot in 1973, but the military strike stopped the editing process. It was shown at first time in Chile in the beginning of the 90s.
