Engrossing, if overlong, portrait of the 1973 Chilean coup
13 November 2000 | by (Edmonton, AB) – See all my reviews

Anyone interested in the story of how General Pinochet managed to steal the leadership of Chile away from the democratically-elected President Allende must see this film. The story of Allende's fall is complex and, at times, perplexing as the gravel-voiced narrator jumps from character to character, topic to topic, with admirable dexterity. But while the subject itself is fascinating, the film is badly hurt by a lack of a structure to communicate the facts to the viewer. Despite its long length and dense web of information, the film is enlightening and infuriating as it makes its point: the capitalists of the world decided the Chilean people had no right to elect a Socialist leader to power.
