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.

A fantastic piece of documentary film-making
22 May 2002 | by (liverpool, england) – See all my reviews

They really don't make them like this anymore - 'old fashioned' documentary techniques used to startling effect - no dramatic reconstructions, no emotionally over-wrought music - just people speaking for themselves, talking about their experiences, giving their views.

Do you think it might catch on?
