Storyline

A young working class girl falls in love with an upper class boy who is part of the plot to assassinate General Schneider, head of the Chilean Army. Set in the frenzied period after Salvador Allende's election as president of Chile, it documents the political and social tensions created by the electoral success of a Marxist-led coalition, an unheard of event in world politics.

A chilean avant-garde movie.
19 August 2011 | by (Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film on TV and I was laughing so hard at some parts (the music teacher was a total charlatan) and angry at others (Juan Carlos, I hated him)...

This is a movie that will create a lot of emotions. At some parts is almost a documentary of the time, the social problems. At others, a surreal movie.

Yes, it could be improve by remastering it. But if you left aside those problems, you would enjoy it very much. The soundtrack, by Los Jaivas, is spot on, a mixture of the Nueva Canción Chilena and the sounds of Woodstock.

The camera work is also superb and the work of Bélgica Castro is magnificent as always.

(Sorry for my English.)

Good bye maestro, I hope everybody has the opportunity of see your work.
