Storyline

The story about Swedish ambassador in Chile - Harald Edelstam - and his heroic actions to protect the innocent people from the execution during and after the military coup on September 11th 1973. We travel with Edelstam during the terrible moments just after the coup and follows his never-ending fight for human rights, law and order. What drove him? And what price did he end up paying for his total commitment? Haunted by his own demons the we experiences on close hand how a womanizer desperately searches to find love again, a task only doable, if he can fight his own past and redeem himself. After saving hundreds - maybe even thousands - he is challenged once more, this time to save his newfound love from the death penalty issued by the regime. Another impossible task and a desperate chase against time. Based on a true story about a man, that did, what all of us only dreams of. Written by Producer

Decent movie, subject matter probably deserved more.
1 March 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this film first and foremost for Michael Nyqvist. He played the role well however the film as a whole wasn't as good as it could have been. It felt like it sped through certain parts where a deeper storyline could have been developed and more background could have been laid down.

So, that's why you have the kind of movie you have at a running time of 1hr30mins. I honestly don't think it provides as much education about the events in Chile as it could/should have, I still don't know much about the events, and the reasons behind it, even after watching this film.

It's a decent film, if you're a fan of Nyqvist then I'd recommend it, but don't expect anything great here.
