The life and death of saltpetre Chilean workers.
9 June 2003 | by (Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This is only film who shows how terrible was life during "The saltpetre age" (1880-1929) for working class in Chile. All the attempts to create worker unions were crushed by violence. Maybe the script show too bad the baddies and too good the good guys, but all these terrible carnages actually took place in some mines. Recommended for those who want to learn about a dark side of our History.
