Trivia

According to an TV interview to Osvaldo Bayer, writer of the novel in which this movie is based, in order to film a scene with a workers protest, the director asked the Santa Cruz governor Jorge Cepernic for extras. The governor then asked the Juventud Peronista (Peronist Youth) to take part. Among those people was Néstor Kirchner, who is now, in 2005, the President of Argentina. See more »

'That's not the way to kill a gaucho!'
25 July 2003 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews



'La patagonia rebelde' recreates the story of some workers of the patagonia farms trying to get better conditions of work from his patrons, inflated by a couple of socialist men that arrived to this town at the bordering of the world. While the story could be typical, the development isn't. It is based on true facts, and the final is one of the most chilling moments I've remember to see in a movie. A very good movie, great script and great acting.
