The second part in a very bravely made trilogy.
9 February 2001 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Battle of Chile surely must be the most interesting from the Chilean troubles from the 70's, handled with style & fervour by the passionate director, who by all accounts is a left-wing sympathiser. The film starts with a roar with the failed coup d'etat, & from there builds up the tragic story of the Allende lead "Marxist" party, telling us who plotted against them & why, all set behind the backdrop of mass public support, eventually quashed by right-wing terror. The film has to be admired also for publicly stating that the CIA helped the bourguoise eventually kill close to 30,000 people, and the fact that this film was a huge risk to the lives of the makers (who had to smuggle it out of Chile and edit it as exiles). Overall it deals with the worker's plight not only in Chile, but as a case study around the world (Brazil & Bolivia for example), and only watching these types of films (this is part 2 of a trilogy) do you sense the realities of this world, and shake off the ideals set by society. Well worth a watch.
