# 58 : What a mess South America was ! (web)
14 February 2016 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

So after a Greek director tells us about Chile coup in « missing », a Chilean actress tells us about El Salvador in « Voces », now we have a Spanish actor back to Chile, bringing along the most delicious American actress, Jennifer Connelly ! I thought it would be a stinker but i was wrong as it's an excellent politic and romance thriller and surely one of the best part for Jennifer ! Unlike a lot of her Hollywood friends, she gets an inspired hand to pick movies that have something to tell : here, it's about liberty, democracy, being dissident and making moral choices. Banderas is also deeply focused and concerned and the production is really well-done. This movie has a real emotional and educative content as it explains why human rights and liberty begin and end in the hands of individuals and not elected or tyrannic representatives.
