Trivia

Cinematographer César Charlone, a native of Montevideo, Uruguay, went to the same college as the survivors. He was supposed to be on the ill-fated flight 571 but, as luck would have it, could not reach Montevideo in time to catch it since he was traveling from Brazil. See more »

Tremendously powerful documentary
1 April 2011 | by (US) – See all my reviews

The story of the survivors of the famous plane crash that inspired 'Alive' – the book and movie.

But rather than focus on the sensationalistic aspects (the death, the cannibalism), it focuses on the emotions, the spiritual crisies, the triumphs and the humanity of these remarkable men.

Through a mix of amazingly candid, open (and beautifully shot) interviews, subtle, well done re- creation footage (a technique I usually despise, but is done so deftly that it works), old footage and photographs, and film of the men returning to the site of their harrowing adventure 30 years later, some with their children, this creates a deeply moving portrait of friendship, loss, courage, and introspection.
