Storyline

True story of the saga that was hoped to be the long-awaited justice brought to bear upon Augosto Pinochet, Chilean dictator from 1973 to 1990. In September 1998, Pinochet flew to London on a pleasure trip but experienced back pain and underwent an operation in the London Clinic. Upon waking, he was arrested by Scotland Yard. Could it be that this was to become the first Latin American dictator to answer for crimes while serving as Head of State? After 500 days of house arrest, he nevertheless eventually returned unscathed to Chile, despite the compelling case built against him before & during this period by a young Spanish prosecutor, Carlos Castresana. Written by Len Massaar

I found the film lacked quality images
15 July 2002 | by (london) – See all my reviews

for the first 5 minutes i hung on in there , it became more apparent that i was actually watching a document not a documentary as i had previously thought , it seemed to go on for an eternity like reading a telephone book , Guzman certainly knows how to make us cry at the right moments but I must say I found some the footage to cheesy and staged to soapy, his original work seems to have peaked ages ago , today it feels more pretentious.
