The tanks are coming!
15 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

-Why didn't you say so before?

-What have you got to fight against the tanks?

"Il pleut sur Santiago' is an interesting work because it remains eminently watchable,very accessible .Let's put it straight:Helvio Soto's biggest mistake is to have cast stars : Bibi Andersson,Annie Girardot,Bernard Fresson,Jean-Louis Trintignant,Nicole Calfan do nothing more than walk-on parts.Laurent Terzieff and Riccardo Cucciola have more substantial parts,but the best scenes are those which include the masses .

Helvio Soto's screenplay passes nothing over in silence: butchered democracy and so-called suicide of Allende , American intervention,copper mines and economic interests , travesties of trial,tortures and murders.He even shows some military men who refuse to obey and a deserter is executed with the "Marxist" .

The political movies were very trendy in France of the seventies:but because those events were recent when the movie was made,"il pleut...." has worn well enough.
