Trivia

When it became clear that two additional scenes would help the script, a) the quarrel about whether Cecilia should publish her article and b) the flashback scene why the Cecilia and Carlos got married, there was a little competition going on between 'Christopher Hampton' and 'Emma Thompson', who both wrote their versions of those scenes. Emma Thompson's version of the flashback scene finally was agreed on. See more »

A very good movie that makes a great impact on people.
31 July 2005 | by (Hoofddorp, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Unlike 'bonbonsf' just said, i do think that those heavier scenes should be included in the film. That makes the big impact. I don't think it would have such a big impact on me without those scenes. Offcourse it's terrible what happened and it should never happen again. But torture, rape and murder were things that happened every single day in Argentina in the 1976-1983 period.

I honestly think it's a good movie. It's about ordinary men, women and children, who are in this strange situation. No one will protect them, as everything is as corrupt as... It's a sad movie but brings to live "the truth", as it actually happened; and never should happen again. "Nunca más"
