back home after a long exile
23 September 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

A documentary about a leftist activist coming back to Chile from exile. Old harrowing memories come back to mind along with fears of finding a submissive Chile that doesn't fit in the ideals they struggled for, so triggering mixed feelings and a sensation of lost battle.

One of the moments features a visit to the place she lived in with her husband, a famous MIR leader, who was shot dead in a police raid after she got seriously wounded almost causing her to die. Amid flashbacks and footage from some decades ago, former party comrades and neighbours are interviewed, so conjuring up aspects and emotions related to exile, former leftist activism in the MIR, frustrations, ordeals, unaccomplished goals and new hopes.

The duration is rather long, but one doesn't get that impression, it captures the attention, making the vision of the film smooth.
