This films tells the true story of seven teenagers who agitated for reduced student bus fares under two different regimes in Argentina, with tragic results. At first succeeding under the government of Isabel Peron, their protests draw hostile attention from the military regime that overthrows Peron. The ensuing crackdown on student social activists is demonstrated when police break up a school dance wielding swords on horseback. Later, six students are kidnapped in the middle of the night, and the police deceitfully claim ignorance about their whereabouts. Pablo (Alejo Garcia Pintos), a seventh member of the group is later arrested and learns that they have been brutally tortured by authorities. He survives to tell their story, but the six are never found, numbering among the hundreds of students who were kidnapped and are still missing. Written by
I have wanted to watch this movie for like three years, but my parents wouldn't let me because i was too little. Today i took courage, i sat down at my couch and i watched it, all by myself. Although i already knew the history of "La noche De los lapices" I must say, it really touched me in many ways. I'm 15 now, and until today I wouldn't realize the importance of a bus ticket, i really wouldn't because i would think that that couldn't have history. But now i understood that since the most big thing until the most little thing in the world are here for a reason. I don't know if you people will understand my point here because i actually find it very confusing to explain here. The thing is, these kids were around my age now. And until today i would not think thsat some kid could chamge the world, not the way they did. I personally know Pablo Diaz (the one who survive) because he is a friend of my mom, and i think this film impressed me this way because i actually knew one of them. I also want to say that this movie doesn't show all the facts, because there wasn't only one surviver, there were four of them. And i don't know why this film doesn't show them, because they are part of our history and they changed the country too. And to MaryChase, you can't say that a group of kids could be terrorists just by showing their ideas, that in fact, is what we do in a daily basis, and no one would kidnap us and torture us and KILL us now. SO YOU SHOULD THINK ABOUT IT. I'm sorry if my English is bad, i hadn't practice in a long time.
