I saw this movie after the Portuguese Revolution (April 25, 1974, the "Red Carnations Revolution").
In theaters, often people raised and applauded the film, with 5 minutes ovations.
It showed Pinochet's bloody coup against Chile's democratic elected President Salvador Allende, and the people's struggle against it. It showed some assertions about US aid to Pinochet, which became public only in recent times.
When I read about the reception Americans gave to "Fahrenheit 9/11", Michael Moore's documentary about the Iraq war and the connections between the Bush and Bin Laden families, I felt the need to recall this movie.
These are harsh times, but truth, in the end, will surface, as oil on water.
